Are you and your nose work partner always tripping each other up? It’s much more fun to dance together as a team instead of colliding. Come to this 2.5 hour workshop to practice a variety of leash handling skills. This workshop is suitable for teams of all levels, as long as your dog is working on odor. Working spots are limited to 8 for optimal learning from all teams. Dogs must be comfortable being crated inside or confined in the car while other dogs are working.

Where: Synergy Veterinary Behavior, 2127 NW York St., Portland, OR.

About the Instructor
Sara McLoudrey became a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI) in 2012, soon after she was introduced to the sport. Since then she has enjoyed teaching a variety of K9 Nose Work group classes, workshops and seminars.

Sara currently competes with her American Water Spaniel, Rizzo in NACSW trials. Rizzo has earned her NW3, NW3-I, NW3-C, NW3-E, NW3-C, L1-C, L1-I, L1-E and L2-V titles. Team Rizzo consistently places in individual elements and the overall trials, earning 3rd place overall for her NW2 and 2nd place overall for her NW3. She also titled her Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Dara for her NW1. Dara came out of her obedience career retirement, and loved nose work since she could participate even though she became deaf due to old age.

Sara loves helping shy or nervous dogs come out of their shell with nose work. One of her favorite teaching topics is leash handling, helping everyone be able handle their dog with skill and finesse.
