Is nosework something you can get into with a human aggressive dog? Like do the other dog owners or class instructors have to be hands on with your dog at all? I've always thought I'd find it boring, but with Cujo here I'm sort of limited and I really do want to do something with him eventually. And boy does he have a nose on him. I've also found the nosework classes to be cheaper than a lot of other classes, which is nice.

I've been considering taking a NW class because we offer it at my work but i don't know that I want another sport on my plate, are you going to just tinker at home?

Oh and you can do K9nosework with any dog, that's its allure really. Only one dog worked at a time and we have a few HA dogs in our classes.

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm going to do, lol. I figure I'll do it in a format that lines up with a titling venue just in case I want to play for more than fun, but really I'm thinking that it sounds like a great way to keep Keeva busy when the weather isn't cooperating.

Absolutely! There is no interaction between students and dogs during class (at least at our classes). OK, that sounded odd- handlers hang out together, but not the dogs. Dogs are either crated or kept in vehicles until it is their turn to work. During your turn to work, the instructor will be in the search area with you. You can even trial with a reactive/aggressive dog. It will wear a red bandana to signal everyone to give it extra room to get from element to element.

That's awesome, I feel bad for him because I'm getting afraid to take him to the park even, where he loves to play with other dogs, I mean it's so easy for a mistake to happen. So being able to do something fun with him would be great, but it'll have to wait until next summer.

Wanted to bump this up-
Do you mind posting where you found instructions?

I want to do this with Jackson, but think I'd rather spend money for an agility class & dock diving vs. nosework class (all nosework classes I've found are between $150-$165 for six weeks). But I'd like to try to do it properly at home.

NACSW has kept training instructions close to the heart. Your best bet is to search for videos on youtube and in blogs. Basically, you classically condition the dog to see a box and think "great, soft edible treat". When the dog becomes anxious to engage in the game, you hide the treat when he can't see where you put it so he learns to "hunt" for it. Add more boxes and use more area. The dog learns to use his nose rather than his eyes. You gradually increase criteria keeping the game interesting by making it slightly more difficult to find....throw in elevations and other containers. The dog always wins. Hope this helps!

I'm lucky- we have a NACSW certified Nosework instructor where we train. She actually teaches at a few different places in our general area. The classes are $160/6 weeks, but that's the same price as all the classes where we train. You can check the NACSW website for certified trainers.
