K9 Nose Work® PDF Print E-mail

The exciting sport of K9 Nose Work® has been designed to help you and your dog work together to use their natural desire to hunt with their nose. By providing a constructive outlet, K9 Nose Work® is a sport that challenges dogs both mentally and physically and is a very healthy way for them to release energy.

No previous experience or training is necessary for the teams involved since this wonderful sport is open to dogs and handlers of all breeds, ages and abilities. Human companions of reactive, shy or nervous dogs will be pleased to know that K9 Nose Work® is a very suitable sport for their dogs. Not only does nose work help to build confidence but each nose work sniffinar is set up in a way that only one dog will work at a time therefore limiting any competing motivators or fear inducing stimuli present during the work. We are offering 3 levels of K9 Nosework®.

Merely Scents Intro to K9 Nose Work®

Does your dog love to sniff? K9 Nose Work® taps into your dog’s natural scenting ability. K9 Nose Work® was inspired by the training of scent detection canines. K9 Nose Work® is open to all dogs including dog-reactive or fearful dogs as there is only one dog in the search area at a time. It is also good for retired, injured, disabled, or elderly dogs. No previous experience or training necessary - for the dog or the handler! Classes are taught with the K9 Nose Work® philosophy of nurturing a dog's natural talents and adjusting to the individual dog without the pressure of human expectations.

Intro to Odor

Now that your dog is eagerly hunting for their primary reward (food or toys), they are ready for Introduction to Odor! In this class we teach your dog to identify and search for a target odor (birch or wintergreen). We focus on building dog/handler teamwork by improving the handler’s observation skills and the dogs’ communication skills to the handler when they find the target odor.

Note: Classes are taught with the philosophy of the National Association of Canine Scent Work. The scents of the Sporting Detection Dogs Association odors are also taught for those that are interested.
