NW350: More Proofing and Generalization for All Levels

Instructor: Stacy Barnett

Course Details

Do you want to make your team the best you can be?  The key to success in Nosework is in Generalization and Proofing.  This course isn’t a skills based course although skills will be enhanced and honed.  It’s a course entirely devoted to trial preparation. Use a systematic process to identify your particular challenges and then design a customized preparation plan for your dog to build confidence, motivation, and ease in novel environments particular to the level that you currently preparing for.  All of our Nosework courses are targeted at getting you trial ready at whatever level you are at, but this course takes trial readiness to the next level.  This course is appropriate for all levels of Nosework students and will give you the confidence you need to step to the start line.

This class is suitable regardless of your Nosework background or how you introduced odor to your dog.  This class is designed to be repeated and to provide the online student with structure necessary to continue to build skills for successful trialing. (Bronze and Silvers will also be building customized plans!)

This is an excellent class for sensitive or environmental dogs as there is a heavy emphasis on the mental state of the dog.

You can expect in this class to see lots and lots of videos of different dogs working.  One of the best learning methods is watching different dogs work.  You'll find that your eye improves and your own ability to read your dog skyrockets!  This class will not only showcase dogs working in the Gold threads but will also showcase a ton of dogs at different levels working throughout the lectures.

You can expect your dog to get much closer to being trial ready, and you can expect your own handling to improve by leaps and bounds!  Hope to see you in class!
