Dog Detection Classes

BEGINNERS

Nero Dog Training is pleased to host our beginners detection class in the city of Amsterdam!

With our 4 week specialised course, you and your dog will learn how to condition and detect a specific scent. Scent work is a game changer and is becoming increasingly popular within the dog training industry due to the multiple benefits. Nose work can help relax a dog, gifts them with a purpose/job and encourages a team mindset between dog and handler. It’s a fantastic and versatile activity that can be used to help dogs that lack confidence as well as those who are constantly ”turned on.” It’s FUN for canines and humans alike and taps into your dogs natural ability. That canine sense of smell is a super power!
