March 2018 Advanced Scent Detection Course
It begins with 4 hours "live on-line" in the Top Tier K9 interactive classroom, learning everything about training a dog or a puppy to find specific odors from the comfort of your own home and face to face with Top Tier K9 certified instructors. An average of 8 additional hours of self-study are common for this live on-line program that takes you to the comprehensive level of learning.
We teach you what you need to know and provide you additional training materials (DVD and learning documents) to help you and your dog start on the path of specific odor detection. Whether you are preparing dogs for Law Enforcement (city, county, state, or federal), sport (AKC Nose Work including scent discrimination at the Utility level), service dog training (including cancer cell indiciation, diabetic alert), cadaver; everyone will benefit from the on-line and on-site programs.
Successful graduates of the live on-line program are then eligible to bring their dogs to the Top Tier K9 main campus in Madison Florida for an intense week of hands on training ending in a practical test. (Successful graduates can come to any on the future on-site classes as long as you have completed the live on-line portion of the program.
Student housing is available on campus, meaning you can immerse yourself in the training program, stay on the grounds, and visit/fellowship with other dog trainers.
Learn from the best in the industry at Top Tier K9. The gold standard in the dog training industry.
Credits can be applied to the working dog and service dog certifications as well as continuing education credits for all Top Tier K9 annual certification requirements
