K9NW Focused Ongoing - this is the intensive coaching multi-week ongoing class for teams already competing in K9 Nose Work® or other venues that are getting ready to compete. Teams using all odors - ABC (Anise, Birch & Clove). Each class will focus on a specific set of handler/dog skills in preparation for competition, and will primarily focus on competitive puzzles designed to meet each teams individual needs. This is the intensive coaching class were we discuss competitive strategies and tactics for being a better competitor; blind searches, time management, leash handling, reading blank areas, thresholds, area coverage and odor understanding.
K9NW Drop-In Practice - ongoing drop in practice to apply the skills and tactics learned in the Focused Ongoing class or for those running multiple dogs and wishing to add more practice time to your week. Teams using all odors - ABC (Anise, Birch & Clove). These classes will complement the Focused Ongoing class by giving teams more search time with related hide placements based on that weeks topic. No prerequisite attendance in the Focused Ongoing class - this will allow extra practice time with limited coaching to maximize search time.
