    "Canine Freestyle is a choreographed performance organized
    with music, illustrating the training and joyful relationship of
    a dog and handler team. Freestyle is an excellent discipline
    to illustrate the conformation and movement of the dog.
    The reach, drive and beauty of an athletic, trained dog
    moving to music can take one’s breath away." Quoted from
    Canine Freestyle Federation's website

Introduction to Nosework: 6 wks/5 Dogs
Geared for dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages, Nosework (governed by the UKC) and K9 Nose Work®
(governed by the NACSW™), brings your dog’s natural scenting ability to bear in “practical fun” searching
for hidden scents indoors and out. Based on basic detection dog skills, this low impact activity builds your
dog’s confidence, burns their “excess energy,” reinforces the bond the two of you enjoy, and even gives the
basis for more practical applications in your day to day life.

This introductory class will teach you and your dog the basics of getting started in this sport, with plenty of
practice developing the skills involved, and information about how to get started in Nosework competitions
in the UKC and the NACSW™. NO PRIOR OBEDIENCE TRAINING IS REQUIRED! Please bring your dog
to class with a back-clipped harness to be used only for Nosework.
