Andrew Ramsey is one of the founders of the UKC NoseWork title program. He has been instrumental in the growth of the sport and making it accessible to all dogs especially those who may not excel in other dog sports and/or pet dogs. NoseWork can build confidence in a shy dog and given an active dog an appropriate and challenging outlet for its energy. NoseWork strengthens the bond between dog and handler and best of all, it is FUN!
Andrew is a former Military Working Dog Trainer with a life-long passion for interacting with canines. His method of training NoseWork is highly sought after for delivering simplified, methodical explanations on the subject matter of building drive and motivation for searching activities in all varieties of dogs, especially those who are pet dogs.
Andrew will help isolate each dogs' preferred reward, regardless of what it may be, and use it to create motivation within the dog. Then he strategically and incrementally builds duration in the dog's willingness to search for their desired reward. With that accomplsihed, Andrew shows the dog that locating specific target odors produces their favorite reward.
