NW2 Trial Prep
The NW2 Trial Prep class will mentally and physically prepare teams for NACSW™ NW2 trials. Some of the topics covered include training with distractions, searching for multiple hides and solving converging odor problems, how to read your dog sourcing an inaccessible hide, covering the search area, working under pressure as well as tips on how to prepare for the day of the trial will be covered.
NW3 Trial Prep
The NW3 Trial Prep class will mentally and physically prepare teams for NACSW™ NW3 trials. Some of the topics covered include covering the search area and reading when your dog has found all of the hides or if there are no hides, building stamina, training for high hides, how not to get lost during the search, dealing with the stress of the unknown, working under pressure as well as tips on how to prepare for the day of the trial will be covered.
Skill Building for Elevated Hides
The goal of this course is to teach the dog how to source an elevated hide and to teach the handler how to call Alert! with confidence. The course includes at least six different ways to practice elevated hides in order to show the dog as many scent pictures as possible. By setting up these searches at home and observing their dogs, handlers will learn to read what their dog looks like when working through an elevated hide. Don't wait to start practicing elevated hides - start working on them today!
