Continuing Knows to the Nose Level 3 Knows to the Nose Level 3 permits handlers and their dogs to continue advancing in NASDA’s online titling program. This course will focus on the recovery of lost items and antler shed. The course will focus on preparing students to prepare video submissions for the North American Sports Dog Association’s (NASDA) Lost Item Recovery and Shed Dog online titling programs. Teams will work at their own level and own pace. Periodically, teams will be videotaped. Videotaped runs may be used for submission to NASDA or to provide teams with feedback to prepare their own video submissions. Teams must meet all of NASDA’s requirements to be eligible for Lost Item Recovery or Shed Dog titles. Dogs need to be registered with NASDA and handlers must apply to NASDA including video submission fees to be considered for Lost Item Recovery or Shed Dog titles. Class requirements: Handlers are required to bring one or more sheets (or other coverings) to cover the sides of pens. All participants must use a fixed length leash, preferably 10 to 12 feet long for Lost Item Recovery and 20 to 30 feet long for Shed Dog. It is highly recommended that dogs wear a harness with a back clip. Choke chains, prong collars and electronic shock collars are explicitly prohibited. Course Meeting Location: This course will incorporate periodic field trips to surrounding area parks such as Hester Park, Frank Bramhall Park, and Tamien Park among others as conditions permit. For Lost Item Recovery, handlers will need to bring a total of four items to the class. Each item should only be scented only by the handler and brought in individual Ziploc bags or containers. A list of items required by NASDA will be sent to registrants prior to the first class session. Pre-requisites: Completion of Knows to the Nose Levels 1 and 2.
