In this class, you will build on the skills learned in the regular scent class and transition your dog from finding a food source scent, to searching for the scent of Birch. The hides become more difficult and handlers must become better at reading their dog's body language. We focus on proper protocols and good reward timing. There will be room, container, and area searches, as well as vehicle.
