SIRIUS® Sherlock Nose
A dog's ability to smell is far superior to ours; it's her primary sense for exploring and navigating the environment. Dogs "smell" their way around the world the way we humans "see" our way through it.
Yet, time and time again our canine companions are thwarted in their efforts to gather information via their noses. We're always telling them to, "Stop sniffing and come along!" Or to, "Get your nose out of there!"
In some cases, this can lead to a dog that becomes frustrated, distracted, or shut down, or, unfulfilled at the very least.
At SIRIUS, we believe in honoring our dogs for what they naturally are, and we found that rather than telling your dog, "You'll never sniff in this town again!" it's far better to provide her with an appropriate outlet to relish this very favorite doggy activity.
The class will unleash your dog's "Sherlock Nose" as well as teach you how to better read your dog's intentions and individual communication style. Giving your dog "the gift of sniff" will enhance your relationship with your best friend and provides the necessary mental stimulation that helps keep dogs healthy and happy. Teaching your dog scent-detection (to find a specific object or odor) is an excellent way for your dog to build confidence, burn lots of mental and physical energy, and have a blast!
Nearly all dogs have excellent noses, therefore, SIRIUS Sherlock Nose classes are perfect for dogs of any age, size, breed-type, or personality.
Because all dogs work one at a time and are crated during down time, this is an excellent class for dogs who are shy, dog reactive, or newly adopted. It's also a great class for dogs that need a lot of mental and physical stimulation and are eager to continue their training. SIRIUS Sherlock Nose classes will give your dog the opportunity to build confidence in new environments, and work around obstacles without the stress of interaction with other dogs.
