Nose Work is a fun-filled sport and training activity that was created by drug and explosives detection professionals. It is based on our dogs' amazing sense of smell and their love of searching and hunting. By encouraging dogs to use their natural scenting abilities and to excel in problem solving during the search, this sport builds confidence and focus, provides lots of mental and physical stimulation, while creating a deeper relationship between you and your dog. This class builds foundation skills and drive to hunt for a target odor leading to a successful and fun searching experience.
Find out how truly amazing your dog's nose really is! Nose Work is perfect for dogs of any age, size and personality. Classes are structured so that dogs work one at a time in the search area. To accomplish this and to allow you to observe the other dogs in class, it is helpful but not required to crate your dog during class.
