While parks and classes are closed, it's a great time to train your dog to find a new scent, like handler discrimination or nosework target oils. We'll show you exactly how, in just 7 training sessions, using the same techniques we use to train professional detection dogs.
Have you been wanting to teach your dog to search for a new scent? Now all you need is a 10x10 ft area, a glove that smells like you (or scent), at least 8 boxes and high value food rewards.
When dogs search, they sniff 200 times/minute and research shows the workout is similar to agility. Mentally, it's far more satisfying than free food in a bowl, with nothing to do all day long.
There's no risk to try the 7-Day Scent Challenge. If you don't have fun, you have 7 days to request a full refund.
You'll have access to the materials for a year, so you don't have to rush. If you'd like to space out your training sessions, you can train once a week and complete the course in 7 weeks. (But to get the most out of this course, monthly training isn't often enough for most teams to keep the momentum going and continue to progress.)
From bed bugs to birds, from narcotics to nosework, Dr. Carla Simon MD BSc MBA has trained hundreds of canine scent detection teams around the world.
Since 1999, she has bred and trained sniffer dogs for Hunter’s Heart Kennels. Hunter’s Heart provides bed bug inspections, and has been featured in the Pointing Dog Journal, the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants Journal, Dogs in Canada, and Clean Run magazines. Carla is a Contributing Editor for the American Brittany Magazine, and a sought-after speaker who drew a sold-out crowd of more than 600 at UBC’s Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
"I enjoy Carla’s classes very much! She has a very positive and encouraging way of instructing, and she always makes sure we and our dogs have fun while learning. Her method of teaching nosework is clear, and provides a very sound foundation, so we see our dogs progress very quickly... Her instruction also gives me insight into how odor travels, and how to be the best handler possible when my dog is searching. My dogs and I are always eager for our next nosework practice, thanks to Carla’s teaching and support."
"Carla is so warm and personable, flexible with her time, and gets back to my email communications promptly. She is upbeat, positive and encouraging to us both. The entire experience has been amazing and I would highly recommend Hunter’s Heart."
"She eagerly shares her knowledge and ensures that both dog and handler are not only progressing at their own pace (no pressure) but are also both having fun."
The 7-Day Challenge price is only $99.99 CAD. That’s a $860 value (if you learned in private lessons).
