K9 NOSE WORK - The newest dog sport engages dogs’ amazing sense of smell, their curiosity, and their natural desire to hunt. K9 Nose Work encourages your dog's natural scenting ability by using their desire to hunt, initially for their favorite food or toys, and later for the scent of one of the three essential oils, birch, anise or clove. It is an excellent confidence builder using a dog's most natural ability – his nose, in a correction free environment.
Each dog and handler team will work individually in the class. This affords each team the optimum training opportunity with minimal distractions and allows those dogs who don't do well in the typical multi‐dog class environment to participate in class.
Dogs can be any breed, age, size or experience. These classes are great for both companion and performance dogs. Those who want to compete will have that opportunity and those want to watch their dogs develop their natural skills will enjoy seeing their dogs burn both physical and mental energy, gain confidence and most of all, have fun.
