If you’re interested in a scholarship for free registration, like this blog post (below) and you’ll be entered in the draw to win a scholarship. The draw happens tonight (11 pm MST on Sunday, Jan. 5) and winners will be announced Monday Jan. 6.

In return for free Premiere registration, scholarship winners agree to videotape their training sessions, and post them on the course website. (That’s a minimum investment of posting 18 min of videos of you training your dog in scent detection foundation skills over 6 weeks).

All ages and all types of dogs can learn to find target odor. The most important thing is to make training fun.

Our scent beginners course provides a broad introduction to scenting, including motivating your dog to love searching for odor, imprinting target odor, introducing tracking and basic scent theory.

You’ll experiment with rewards to find the best reward for your dog. You’ll start teaching your sniffer dog to find source at a distance independently, tracking articles and working up to a 10 second indication. You’ll learn how to be a better partner by understanding the basics of scent theory, so you can help get your dog to where they need to be to find odor.
