What you will learn:
This seminar will work on introducing dogs that have not been exposed to nose work, to learn to search. Dogs that have had training in nose work will have their education expanded. We will teach handlers through ‘games’, how to read their dogs and teach new skills to the dogs on reading scent puzzles. We will also be explaining how scent works and answer questions about ORT’s (Odor Recognition Tests) and competition.
Working Spot: $125 per team (one dog and one handler) includes hands-on learning with your dog. Complimentary lunch included.
Auditing Spot: $25 per person. Includes auditory learning for the handler only (no work with your dog). Cost for lunch is $5.
Registration closes on May 15th!
*Space Limited to 12 working spots! Sign up now! If enough interest is generated, we can extend to a 2nd day for 12 more spots!
A bit about Holly Goltra
I've competed in NACSW Nose Work trials with 3 dogs. I started with an American Bulldog puppy and a elderly German shepherd who made it to NW2 before retiring. My American bulldog is the first American bulldog to make it to elite level and beyond. He has since finished his championship and attended a summit trial where we took 5th place over all. He will be doing his 2nd summit in March. My youngest just finished her NW3ELT, usually with placements, and will be doing her first Elite trial in March. I've also, over the years, trained/competed in: AKC, UKC, and specialties conformation shows; AKC/NADAC agility; Barn Hunt, AKC Obedience & Rally; Dock Diving; Weight pull; Herding; Tracking; and the relatively new sport of Parkour. I've trained and competed with: 2 mix breeds, 4 German shepherds, an Akita, American bulldog, and a Labrador retriever. I'm also enjoying rehabbing an older pit bull I found dumped in the desert that's become my husband's favorite dog.
A bit about Gina Agrellas
I have attended numerous seminars through NACSW including Understanding Odor and Olfaction, Advancing your Foundation and Handling Skills, and Mental Management to mention a few. I have currently attended the second portion of the NACSW instructor weekend course on my journey to become a certified K9 Nose Work ® instructor. I am now listed as an ANWI instructor through the NACSW website completing what was required to officially teach k9 Nose Work ® classes and I am looking forward to bringing fun, understanding and bonding to the teams I train. I have been training with my own two dogs through NACSW since April of 2012. One dog earned his ELT2 title this last year, I lost him in September. My other dog has earned her Elite title and is working towards her Elite1 title. We have added a puppy to our family, so will start it all over again with him! I am still actively taking classes, seminars and trialing with my dogs.
