Class processThe dogs take their turn one at a time which means each dog gets about 15-20 minutes of sniffing time in total. That duration is broken up into short sessions - they have a short turn and then go back to the vehicle (other suggestions available) to wait while the other dogs rotate through their short turns. This rotation continues until class time is over. While 20 minutes in total may not seem like a lot of sniffing time - IT IS A LOT of sniffing time - nose work is very mentally tiring.
