A dog’s nose is a pretty amazing structure. Humans have about 5 million cells devoted to smelling; dogs have 220 million! Dogs have the ability to wiggle each nostril independently, breathe through the holes in the front of their nose and exhale through the side slits. They can also discern individual odors making up what we would call “scent.”
K9 Connection is excited to be offering a Scent Class to train your dog to pick a target scent. This sport builds on the dogs’ natural ability to hunt and detect scent, and determine its location. Starting with food, you dog will eventually learn to discriminate various essential oils. As your dog progresses, they can even learn learn to find objects such as your car keys!
Our next class starts Monday July 10th at 7:15 pm. *This session will last 7 weeks with no classes being held on Monday July 24th.
We will also be offering a Sunday Scent Class beginning on Sunday July 16th at 10:30am. This session will last 7 weeks with no classes being held on Sunday July 23rd.
The course runs for 6 weeks – $125.00
Online registration will be available beginning Monday July 3rd.
