Basic Scent Detection


After the K9 Team has successfully completed Imprinting and Introduction to Detection, they are ready to progress to Basic Scent Detection. Here, the K9 team takes the skills learned in Imprinting and Intro to Detection to the next level. The team learns search for target odors, increased leash handling skills both on and off lead, and learn basic deployment techniques.

***Class hours***
Class Hours- Most Friday afternoons/evening in Valley Center, Ca. and most Saturday mornings in Ramona, Ca. We say "most" because Pete is sometimes called away for an assignment or to Judge a K9 event.

Group classes are $25 per K9 team. Each session is 1 hour with a maximum of 4 dogs in attendance. Some handlers will run more than 1 dog however class size is still limited to 4 dogs.

Private 1 hour classes are $100. The time is yours so you may run as many dogs as you like. This is perfect for problem solving or more advanced training.

All classes are "pay as you go". No need to purchase a block of classes, if something comes up and you can't make it to training, just let Pete know so he can free up your normal time slot.

We don't have any classes lined up right now, sign up for our mailing list to find out about the next one.
