This introductory DVD shows the progression of a dog, Parker, and her handler, Christy, who, after attending an Introduction to K9 Nose Work workshop, went home and over the next eight months, put into practice what they learned on that one day. The video diary Christy kept shows the progression of how to play and develop the game. The Parker videos are the focal point of the DVD and are supplemented with informative commentary from Ron Gaunt, NACSW co-founder, who describes the subtleties he observes during Parker's searches. Viewers will come away with an understanding of:

- Getting a dog started in K9 Nose Work
- Common mistakes to avoid
- How to make learning this sport fun for both canine and human partners
- Terms and concepts

The mission of the NACSW is to make the activity of K9 Nose Work safe, fun and fair for every dog and dog lover through the sanctioning of all K9 Nose Work activities, the training of all Certified Nose Work Instructors, and the officiating of all K9 Nose Work Odor Recognition Tests and K9 Nose Work Trials.

What reviewers are saying...

The Midwest Book Review
The Parker Video offers an outstanding survey of a K9 dog team in the making and features K9 dog Parker and Handler Christy, who demonstrate the skills used as a K9 Nose Work workshop presented by professional detection handlers. Christy videotaped some eight months of training: this video provides a fine survey of the process, it includes voice-over commentary and observations by Ron Gaunt, a co-founder of the sport, and teaches interested viewers how to get started in their own K9 Nose Work training. A vivid, informational and fun video, this is a pick for any interested in dog training in general and K9 Nose Work in particular. James A. Cox Library Bookwatch

    The subject matter is excellent and very informative. I learned a lot. The DVD is very grainy. It would be great to digitally remaster this and offer it via electronic platform.

    A little disappointed, I didn't know they were going to start the training with food in the nosework. I wanted to watch how to back chain with an actual scent.

    I really like how this was broken down and used real footage with voice over to help you understand. I really liked it

    This was very well done and will be ideal for a demonstration our group plans to give in January
