I started learning about nose work with a senior dog, who was not able to trial due to health problems. I then started with a new dog, and he passed all 3 ORT’s in 1 day. Then we did his first NW1 trail and earned his title. I thought I really have a good nose work dog. But now he is working on his NW3 title and has done 5 trials with some success. His biggest problem now is alerting on distractors and the odor. I do believe I have missed something in his basic training.
