Nosework is a canine sport created to mimic professional detection dog tasks. One dog and one handler form a team. The dogs must find a hidden target odor, often ignoring distractors (such as food or toys), and alert the handler. After the dog finds the odor they are rewarded with food or a toy. Nosework is a fast growing sport in part because it accommodates canines with disabilities or behavior problems.
CKCOJ is hosting a 1-day seminar on Beginning Nosework on Saturday, March 10. The seminar will be have a morning and afternoon session with a 1 1/2 hour lunch break. Both sessions will be working sessions with instruction interleaved.
CKCOJ members will have first priority for the available working slots. The number of working slots is limited. There will be an opportunity to audit (without a dog) the work session.
