Nosework videos

I think I would like to teach the old gal nosework this winter. There aren't any classes around here so I was hoping someone could offer opinions on good videos or books? She already knows an indoor/outdoor "find it" game with her ball which is her all time favorite thing to do...

Also considering the Fenzi class?

Saw Dave Kroyer has NW videos.

Any opinions appreciated.

I haven't seen it, but Halo and I make a brief appearance in the first of the Andrew Ramsey series of nosework DVDs.

There is the Parker videos"how one dog got started in nose works" put out by the national association of scent work. Many you tube videos of the above mentioned and Mike Suttle. I would suggest going to a upcoming nosework clinic/workshop in your area-tons of information. It is worth a bit of travel. It always help to have someone critique what you are doing as most often handler error- the dog knows quickly what to do. In the clinics/workshop you can bring your dog to be part of the clinic/workshop if you choose or just watch. It really is so much fun I don't think I can ever get bored doing this.

There is a clinic coming up and I had thought of going..., but it is very near to a seminar I am already signed up for and it may be too much. I will look into it again...

I'm sure they will have a clinc again it is definitely worth going. http://www.k9nosework.com/ is one place you can get the scent kit and the Parker video which shows you a clear way how to start nose works. Leerburg also offers the nosework kit and info on there as well. Start saving many boxes-lol!!!!

One more question....I was reading reviews of the Ramsey NW video and it sounded like not a 1 person job? Must you have 2 ppl? This being to train a dog who knows her markers, knows a "search" cue and has tons of ball and food drive.

I am always pestering my husband to do something it seems like...he will not be thrilled with another "hey honey will you help me train the dog to do xyz lol"

The only time you need a second person is when you do blind hides and that is later on which does not require much effort. I drag the kids to Home Depot when we go so they record and do perhaps a blind hide if I like the way things are going. Recording what goes on does help you see the mistakes you make. The last time we went to Home Depot Max was struggling but he did find all the hides but was not as strong being in oder -I felt. I heard no wind sucking through the nose like usual or crouching on the ground - he often does this. . I was a little puzzled as to why I checked the tin and had found out that the tin the cotton swab was in had no scented cotton swab in it. Duh? The tin had a smell not detectable to us. Detectable to Max from the prior qtip that was in it I felt awful but he did incredibly well and found every hide I was proud. We did go back to another Home Depot next day with our qtip in the tin and noticed how strong he was in odor then previously. By son just being himself served also served as a great distraction-lol. Later on when training for distractions Home Depot is a great place to go later in to train for distractions- large equipment buzzing around loud banging sounds people walking by many bins and places to hide the scent in. Petco is another great place - little critter, dogs, food smells
Etc.
