About the event




When you play the GAME OF BONES, you win come back next time to try again!  Don't miss out on this month's edition where you can get paid to spend time with your dog!   More games, more scent work and more fun brought to you by Kynd Training and Nose Pros, in association with Doghouse Drinkery & Dog Park.   


Ever wonder what Judge’s (or perhaps your dog) want to say to you when you are searching? Now’s your chance!  If you want, your Judge will let you know what she is seeing when you run each search.  Commentary could include things like start line etiquette, body position, leash handling, odor vs. distractor smelling, reward timing, etc. Commentary will not include directing competitors to the hides – sorry folks!  Want to learn on our own? No problem, you can also work each search area independently.

 · 2 search areas will be set up. 

· Level 1 search - known number of hides and more novice hide placements 

· Level 2 search – unknown number of hides and more advanced hide placements 

· Most hides found in fastest time determines placements 

This month's Game of Bones features: 

• Level 1 - this level is for dogs who are on odor working at NACSW NW2, USCSS Advanced or AKC Advanced level (or below) 

• Level 2 - this level is for dogs working at NACSW NW3, USCSS Senior, or AKC Excellent level (or above)
