  Description of Seminar/Conference

What is K9 Nose Work(tm)? K9 Nose Work(tm) is a dog training activity designed to develop a dog's natural scenting ability by using her/his
curiosity, desire to hunt, and love of toys, food and exercise.

The art and practice of nose work is open to dogs of all shapes and sizes and has made basic search dog skills available to companion dogs, creating a new sport arena for dog enthusiasts. Not only has it proven to be a great activity for all types of dogs, including socially challenged dogs, but the founders' techniques make this one of the most accessible activities for the widest variety of dog handlers regardless of previous training experience.

The Handler Camp is open to all levels from beginner to competition level K9 Nose Work. This all-inclusive sleepover camp will concentrate on the elements necessary to succeed at the sport of K9 Nose Work as well as its application for increasing a dog's confidence regardless of interest in competition. The curriculum will cover starting dogs, introducing odor, introducing exteriors and vehicle searches, improving skills for dogs already working the four required elements, handler skills (leash handling techniques, understanding how to read the dogs, competition rules), trouble shooting and a variety of other necessary skills, PLUS loads of camp fun.

Each dog and handler team will be grouped with other similar level participants to maximize learning and progress during camp. Mild to moderately canine reactive dogs are welcome. This 3.5-day Handler Camp is open to all appropriate dog and handler teams as well as auditors.

Are you an Instructor interested in developing a K9 Nose Work(tm) program? For instructors that are currently teaching nose work or those that would like to start classes or training groups, the camp offers instructor education options for those interested in becoming a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI). The Instructor Camp is comprised of the Handler Camp and an additional instructor education day. There are two instructor education day options to pick from depending on your nose work experience.
