This class will also prepare them for more advanced nose work training. Classes run for 4 consecutive weeks and are 60 minutes long. One dog per registration.

*Dogs should not have any significant behavior issues or have trouble working in an environment with other dogs and people.* Given the nature of this training, class duration can change depending on when the dogs become fatigued.
