nose for nw promo

Nose Work is an exciting, positive and fun new sport designed to channel dogs’ natural scenting abilities. Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This makes scent work the most natural thing any dog can do!

This sport is based on the foundation skills used in K9 detection work training, like bomb or drug detection. Classes focus on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their curiosity, desire to hunt, and their love of food and toys.

Whether you plan on working toward a title, providing your dog with a new challenge or doing it just for fun, it’s a great way for any dog to build confidence and burn lots of mental energy! Dogs are sniffing it up and having a BLAST! Find out how good your dog’s nose really is! This class is great for ELDERLY and REACTIVE dogs!
