Continuing K9 Nose Work

This class is appropriate for handlers who just completed Introduction to Odor, as well as those who have been working on Birch for some time. The class will advance handling skills and technique, introduce more challenging scent problems, and introduce some competition elements. All dogs eventually will add the other two target odors. This is a continuing skill class where groups of students advance together. It is repeated several times before it becomes an advanced class.
