Titles in Agility and Dock Diving Sports


A dog's ability to smell is so much greater than ours, we can't even imagine it. And - they love to use their nose as a tool but don't know how to show you what it means.


This class will help you find out how to read your dog and encourage his natural curiosity.


We'll talk all about nosework - from how and why they have such great skills to teaching ourselves how to read our dogs.


So if you want to compete for titles or just have fun with Nosework, success is still fun!!


Fun video of the last class!
