Nose Work Classes

Goals

Dogs love nose work classes!  They will get to learn how to pick out a scent from one of many boxes.  They will learn how to perform interior and exterior searches.  They even learn how to pick out a buried scent.  This class will provide you with the foundation if you would like to pursue the many scenting/nose work titles from AKC and/or NACSW.

Next Class

There was so much interest in the last class that Lois has graciously offered to teach this class again.

The next class will start Monday, January 8th, 2018 and finish February 12th.  Classes start promptly at 6 pm.  Classes meet every Monday for a 6 week period.  Classes meet in downtown Idaho Falls.  The location is 447 Park Ave.  As this class meets inside, please prepare to have a portable crate for your dog during instruction and while waiting for their turn to scent.

This class is limited to 10 spots.  Please register early.
