NACSW SW Challenge #1

NACSW has four challenges to test your skills, preferably off leash:

  1. Independent Hunting – working at a distance from the handler
  2. Suspended Hides
  3. Multiple Hides – without going back
  4. Containers – distractors without going back to an already found hide.

You do not need an ORT.

You will need a NACSW membership to send in your videos if you want to compete.

Introduction to Odor

(Nose Work)

Scent Work is a sport where you challenge the dog to use their natural ability to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found.

Scent Work will build and strengthen the bond of trust between the handler and dog. Teach your young dog to use his brain or get the senior dog off the couch and back to enjoying the game.  We start with the odor Birch, but you can easily transition to find other scents.

Scent Work is enjoyed in multiple venues – AKC, UKC and NACSW.  

Introduction to Elements 

(Nose Work)

You’ve taught your dog to find odor, now it’s time to challenge your dog to find birch anywhere!

Teach your dog to find birch inside a room, outside in the yard, in any type of container, buried in sand or water, or even on a vehicle.  And then add odor for Anise, Clove, and Cypress.

 

My dog “NOSE” odor

(Nose Work)

You’ve taught your dog to find odor.  You’ve sniffed all the elements.  Now it’s time to increase the challenges in this continuing education class.

This class will help dog and handler fine tune their leash handling skills and work as a team.  The handler will learn to trust their partner’s nose and the dog will learn to communicate with the handler exactly where the odor can be found.
