Hooked on Scentwork? Want to try out scentwork trials? This is the course designed to specifically help you.
In our five week course we will:
Condition scentwork trialling oil (if you are already working with an oil we can add another OR work on precision with your indication)
Provide advice on the rules and what to expect at a trial
Introduce the four elements - containers, interiors, exteriors and vehicles and how to approach them
Practice mock novice trial set-ups
Whilst the first class will be held at Billy's Day-care for Dogs in Belmont, the remaining four classes will be held at trial-like venues in the Shire of Kalamunda to help expose you and the dogs to different environments.
Classes are designed and taught by Fiona Cowie (Foundation ANKC Scentwork Judge) and/or Stephanie Bryson (Scentwork competitor). Both are also qualified trainers accredited with the IMDT.
Maximum of five dogs per class. Dogs need to be dog and human social and non-markers. Course consists of five 90 minute classes
