ABOUT K9 NOSE WORK CLASSES
Nose work is great fun for your dog and provides wonderful enrichment. It’s perfect for just about any dog – young, old, fast, slow, rambunctious or shy, hearing or deaf dogs, visually impaired dogs, and even dog-reactive dogs. Intro to Nose Work consists of two, 6-week classes. This fun class will introduce your dog to to nose work, build drive and enthusiasm, develop key skills, introduce them to the key search elements (interiors, exteriors, vehicles, containers), and introduce the dogs to odor. It will also teach handlers good dog observations skills.
Taught by a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI), these classes will use the proven methodologies developed by the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW), the developers and leaders of this exciting sport. Your dogs will love the reward-based activity, as well as the opportunity to do what comes naturally to them, be the leaders of the searches, solve problems, and develop organically at their own pace. Your dogs will build the critical foundations skills needed to thrive doing nose work for fun or for competition with any venue (NACSW, USCSS, AKC, UKC).

WHAT IS NOSE WORK?
Nose Work is a fabulous activity and sport designed for anyone and any dog. Nose Work builds on your dog’s natural ability to smell and hunt, and builds drive to search for food and odors. You and your dog can play for fun or compete in sport trials. It provides mental exercise for your dog, builds confidence for shy or fearful dogs, gives high energy dogs a workout without requiring the owner to be athletic (no running like in agility), helps dogs focus, helps the reactive dog participate in a classroom environment without the stress of other dogs in the room at the same time, and strengthens the relationship between you and your dog. It’s fun for you and your dog!
