This DVD is a companion to the book Canine Kingdom of Scent. Nosework is the only activity that allows dogs to live following their instincts and to use their natural abilities in a way that is enjoyable for both dogs and human companions. Nosework helps dogs find balance and self-confidence and develop a relationship of serene cooperation with their owners, owners who themselves will discover a new understanding of their dogs and their singular capabilities.
This introductory DVD shows the progression of a dog, Parker, and her handler, Christy, as they explore K9 Nose Work. After attending an Introduction to K9 Nose Work workshop, the pair went home and, over the next eight months, put into practice what they learned on that one day.
