Saturday, November 18, 2017 (Rain Date Sunday, November 19, 2017)
Scentinel Nose Work Dog Training is hosting a K9 Nose Work Off-Site Training with Gail McCarthy, CNWI, on Saturday, November 18, 2017, at the River’s Edge Garden Center in Framingham, MA. There are no interior areas at this location so a Rain Date will be Sunday, November 19, 2017. This is a super neat place to train in and we have attached some photos of the Search Areas below.  So, come join us for a K9 Nose Work Off-Site Training showcasing “real world” hides in a brand-new search environment. Gail is happy to give suggestions where appropriate to strengthen each dog team’s performance. And, as usual, we will offer Bonus Hides and a Mega-Hide-Search-Area.  Dogs must be on odor used for each level that the dog attends.  Space is limited.
NW1 Off-Site Training 9:00 am
NW2 Off-Site Training 11:30am
NW3 Off-Site Training 2:00pm
Location is in an outdoor nursery located in Framingham, MA that is closed for the season.
For More Information and Registration, please click on the navigational icon entitled “Registration for Workshops and Off-Site Trainings” in this website’s dashboard and follow the registration instructions found there for this event.  Or, email Gail at scentinelnosework@gmail.com
