Default Starting Nosework class next week

I'm starting Mauser in Nosework I class next week.

Has anyone else done this with their dogs?

I'd love to do this with my dogs! They are supposed to love it and be neat to see how they'd do.

Keep us updated with how you do..

I've done classes with Raven and Kaiser and some at home with Holly and attended a 5 day camp last labor day. It's a ton of fun. Low pressure sport that dogs really love.

A lot of instructors have their own way of teaching it. Some go slow, some go fast.

Our class was pushed back to Jan 12th - NEXT saturday. I've already started working Mauser with his tennis ball in boxes.

So, first nosework class is under our belt and I think Mauser did great.

There are only 4 dogs in class and by the end he was actually getting a little bored. We were the only team using a toy. Mauser really doesn't care much for food - balls are MUCH more exciting.

I took a couple tennis balls and put handles on them. One would go in the box and the other was the 'reward'.

Mauser was doing closed boxes before the other dogs.

The one thing we are going to change is that instead of two toys I'm going to bring a piece of a tennis ball to put in the boxes. That way he doesn't have the chance to play with what's in the box - he only gets the reward I have. The piece in the box is only for scent.

He did go off on two dogs - one in class and one afterwards. I need to find a reactive dog class for him.

We just started last week too. I was just practicing with Nikon in the basement and Coke came down. I let him try too so I guess I will be training him at home too. He gave me this look like "hey *I* can sniff something in boxes!" and I couldn't resist.

This is what they call the Intro class. It is teaching and building the hunt drive in the dogs. After this class we move on to the first 'real' class - Birch.

Lies - I'll probably work my Cresteds as well while I'm practicing with Mauser. They are ALL highly food motivated.
