Dogs were born to use their noses!  This class will focus on building your dog's hunting skills and teach you, the handler how to read your dog.  Our dogs are the best teachers in this activity!  During this session we will work on searching containers and interiors.  All dogs work one at a time.  That allows dogs that aren't comfortable with other dogs to participate in class.  Please clear your dog with the instructor first if it is uncomfortable with other dogs.
