This course will teach you about the foundational concepts in nose work. You will learn how to increase motivation in your dog and make them more pro-active, focussed thinkers that enjoy working. Nosework can be a lot of fun for dogs and their humans. It helps teach dogs a focussed attention that can help with anxiety, fear and reactivity. It’s also a great way to fulfill your dog and tire them out in a healthy way that they will enjoy. By the end of this course, your dog will be able to search for, and indicate where a specific odor is hidden. This course is also a prerequisite for our other nosework and tracking courses. We will spend an entire module on increasing your dogs motivation. Dogs of all ages and motivation levels can participate. This course will cover: • Creating/increasing motivation required for effective nosework • How to work with all types of dogs and personalities • Classical and Operant Conditioning for nosework • Marker Training • Factors that effect scent, odor chemistry, and the science of odor • Detection Training Tools and Equipment • Odor imprinting • Response to odor • Hide Placement Live, virtual classes are held weekly. Each class will consist of a lecture portion and a practical portion where you will interact directly with Okami Canine and receive live, personalized coaching for your dog and their level of progress. There will also be on-going coaching through a private FB group to ensure everyone is on track for the next class.
