    DFW Metro Scent Work Club NACSW Workshop with Jason Heng, CPDT-KA, CNWI

    Working Spots are Full

    Many of the Nose Work associations test using Birch, Anise and Clove – so that is just the first step in preparing for competition. The National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW) is similar to other associations with some small differences that can challenge even the most experienced teams. The NACSW philosophy is designed to challenge the team but honor the dogs’ scenting skills by creating “real” world search areas where the diverse environments test the search skills necessary for a team to not only be successful, but to develop the partnership required to compete at a high level of competence.

    At this seminar, Jason will:

    • cover NACSW rules;
    • provide an understanding of the foundation skills required to be successful in competition in the NACSW and beyond;
    • work all elements – Interiors, Exterior, Containers and Vehicles; and
    • review the overall setup: what to expect, how to prepare and, most importantly, how to develop as a team to meet any challenge you might encounter.

    These NW1, NW2, NW3 level skills coalesce for a team to be successful. These skills do not go away at the higher levels but will enhance the handler and dog’s ability to execute these skills at an expert level, and to minimize mistakes or mitigate errors. These are not unique to the NACSW but competing in this venue tends to be diverse in trial environments which leads to a high level test of the foundations skills for each handler and dog team.
