Winter K9 Nose Work

Jet is doing more K9 Nose Work! We got to practice in a brand new place today. Willow Creek Dog Training center. Jet did so awesome. He definitely is sniffing for the Anise, not just treats.

I changed to the odor pretty recently, we’ve only done it a couple of times at home. And I don’t know if I posted about this before, so forgive me if I repeat myself, but I’ve put a nose touch and a sit as indicator behaviors to the find. I did that at home with the odor in the tin. He already knows a nose touch, so it was easy to have him touch the tin and then sit. Then I did a really easy find for him with the tin. And he’d find it, and I’d give him a good woo hoo and a jackpot so he understood that he’s searching for the odor now, not the treats. And he got it in like two finds! He’s such an amazing dog.

So moving to a new place is another challenge. And this was a really big room for him too. Maybe I’ll buy myself some scott kay jewelry as a celebration because he’s doing so well!

Here are some other vidoes of him if you want to see them too:

  1. Awesome! He definitely knew when he had it.

    I did a little bit of Nosework with Marge – just the beginnings, no odor, just a treat. I REALLY wish my club would offer a class in it.. I think I’d be more motivated to train her in a group or class setting!

  2. Hi Samantha.. yeah, I do better going to a weekly class than just on my own. 🙂 When I have a structure I have more motivation! Levi’s been having fun in the class but we are in between classes now, I hope they start another one soon!
