Drop In Class: Foundations for the Competitive Nosework Dog

This class is intended to be an “add on” to your regular training class, no matter where you take it.  We will focus on keeping the foundation skills in your nosework dog sharp so you can work higher level problem solving in your regular classes.  This is particularly important for NW3 and Elite level dogs or if you do a fair amount of blind searching through your regular practice.  These classes will be held approximately once a month and pre-registration is required.  We will run the class with a minimum of 5 students, and we will cap the class at 8.  Classes are one hour long.  Come join us for a relaxed class focusing on fundamentals!

NoseWork Dinner Theatre – A casual evening of learning

This is a unique event The Dog’s PACE is excited to offer!  Everyone says videoing your searches is the best way to learn, but it would be nice to know how to best review them.  What are you looking for?  What did you miss?  This is the very thing we will be discussing while enjoying a coordinated pot luck diner.  Trial videos will be chosen randomly to practice reviewing skills.

Pace Games/ELITE Fun Day!

During this event you will have an opportunity to practice the games you want.  We will be offering 4 games: Cups, Do Not Return, Container/Vehicle mixed element, BFS (Big Freakin Search).  For each game you enroll in you will have 2 opportunities to play the same game.  For example: If you enter to run the cups, you will have two unique set ups of the Cups to search.  You can enter all of the games or just the few you’d like to try.  They will be run in the order listed above, but we will complete all entries in each game before moving on to the next one.  For example we will run every entry for the Cups, before moving on to Do Not Return.

A sniff through is an opportunity to run through a trial-like environment with blind searching opportunities.  You and your dog will get to perform at least 4 searches, but we cannot guarantee that all 4 search elements will be represented.

Cost: $35 for the first run.

A mock trial is a simulation of a trial with all 4 search elements represented.

Intensive Classes

A Focus on Vehicles – An INTENSIVE Series Class

In this class we will focus on successful vehicle searches.  We will learn about wind flow, examine how the odor moves around the vehicles, practice different vehicle set ups.  You must be willing to have your vehicle in searches to be a part of this intensive.  Dogs will be crated outside of the vehicles.

Dates: June 11, 18, & 25 2019
Time: 6:15 pm
Cost: $275

Registration

What is an Intensive?

Intensive classes are like 3 workshops in one.  These classes meet once a week for 3 weeks in 2-3 hour sessions.  This gives us more focused time to dive deeply and investigate training problems and provide further understanding of principles for you and your dog.  Throughout the course, we will focus only on one topic related to competetive nosework.

Working spaces are limited to 6-8 students.  Audit spaces may be available.  Each intensive session includes at least 7.5 hours of very personal instruction at a discounted price, compared to 3 workshops (typically $95-150 each).
