We wanted to address our general membership regarding expectations and requirements when our events are able to resume as things begin to reopen in parts of the country. All information included will be updated as needed as this continues to be a rapidly changing situation. It is your responsibility to be aware of the current information if you attend an event.
The NACSW Education Division's Instructor Certification Program was developed to ensure a standard and quality of instruction that adhered to the founders’ original concepts of training that relied on dogs’ instinctual independent hunting and puzzle solving skills. Today there are instructors in nearly every state of the country, as well as several internationally. These instructors are helping students with all types of training goals for their dogs, including building confidence, social enrichment, high level competition, and most importantly having fun. Visit the NACSW Education Division website at www.k9nosework.com to learn more about the K9 Nose Work training methodology, or to find a Certified Instructor near you.
Our new online titling option is now available. Take videos demonstrating your dog's competency at designated skills. We will offer two challenges per year. Each challenge will be available for submissions for one year. The first challenges skills include independent hunting, suspended hides, multiple hides and containers.
