Maximum K9 Scent Sport is designed to teach your dog how to use its nose. We will introduce your dog to one scent and begin to associate it with special treats or toys. Once your dog recognizes these scent, we will teach them to indicate the presence of the hidden odor. This course will show the handler how to read a dog that is “in odor”, and the importance of letting the dog figure things out to discover their natural talents; it will also incorporate small distractions into the working environment. As your dog progresses, we will introduce it each of the four scents tested by the AKC (Birch, Anise, Clove, and Cypress), and new environments such as vehicles, bushes, buildings, and more. Scent sport is a great way to build your dog’s confidence, stimulate your dog mentally and physically, and strengthen your bond.
