K9 Nose Work Class

Taught by Certified Nose Work Instructor Catherine Gryniewicz.  We will offer 3 different K9 Nose Work (NW) classes including Introduction to K9NW, Advanced K9NW, and Introduction to Odor.  After taking all three classes the canine team should be able to take an Odor Recognition Test (ORT).  For all classes, dogs must be in a crate or in your vehicle when not working.  Only one dog is working at a time.  Dog reactive dogs, but not people reactive dogs, can do this sport.  Please use a red bandana on your dog if it is dog reactive.

Classes are limited to 4-6 dogs.  First 3 classes are held at Badger Kennel Club Training Facility.  The last 3 classes are at various locations to be determined.

Bring to class:  Crate, 3 corrugated boxes, 6 foot leash, collar or harness and treats that your dog loves.

Prior to signing up for the class, please contact Dawn by email (below) to confirm availability of class.  Depending on interest and experience levels, we may offer 2 Introductory classes and drop one of the other classes.  Sign up using the Nose Work Class Flyer.
