909 - Nosework Sniff n Go

Sniff and Go

Fees: $50 per dog for five searches at either NW1 or NW3 level. Note: A variety of searches will be offered (Interior, Container, Exterior and possibly Vehicle) and will approximate a trial environment but may not meet all competition requirements. Runs may be done blind or with known hide locations, handler's choice. Levels are NW1 (1 hide per search) or NW3 (0-3 hides per search). Additional dogs may be run by the same handler with a separate entry and fee, but the hide locations will not change.

Schedule: More information including run-order and check-in time will be emailed at least 2 days prior to the event. You will run all of your searches back-to-back and then depart the facility.  Instructors/Volunteers will be available to act as a judge, but no scoring or prizes will be offered.  Participants may request as much or as little help as needed; this is a training opportunity not a trial!  Searches may be split between 2 "judges" and run concurrently.

Refund Policy: To request a refund, please email ohbehave@marinhumane.orgAll requests for cancellations must be received via email at least 1 week prior to the event for a refund. All refunds are subject to a 10% processing fee. Entry fees will not be refunded for absent or excused dogs. 

Dogs Participating: Dogs must be crated in cars when not working, please be prepared with your own shade and water. There is no specific reactive dog parking but we ask everyone to allow all dogs at least 6 feet of distance at all times. Event site is an active animal shelter.  Dogs must be on a 6 foot leash when not searching. Please only use the designated potty area, and do not wander the campus or interfere with volunteers walking shelter dogs.

If you have any questions or would like to be put on the waitlist, please contact Carrie at calongi@marinhumane.org.

NOTE: COVID-19 safety procedures apply. Masks are required for unvaccinated individuals.
