Nosework

The K9 Nose Knows!
Our dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt.
Whether you’re interested in scentwork for fun or competition,
come and find out more about the newest urban sport for dogs!
Any dog that can use his nose can play scentwork games.
This new sport can be played almost anywhere, anytime!

This sport/training accommodates almost every type of dog:
It’s a great way to give an older dog something to do impact free.
It’s a great way to burn off physical and mental energy in a younger dog.
For shy and timid dogs, it builds confidence.
For dog-aggressive or reactive dogs, Nose Work is perfect because there are never any other dogs present in the search area while one dog is working and searching!

In these classes we focus on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their natural desire to hunt, and their love of food, toys and play.

6-week sessions – 8 dogs maximum per class
