Class Details

Teaching your dog to use his nose productively is great fun.  The K9 Nose Work® training philosophy makes it even more fun by focusing on your dog's motivation to hunt in new and exciting ways than he's searched before.  In addition to offering your dog a task that isn't taxing on his body, nose work is a great confidence builder, and offers your dog the mental stimulation to keep him satisfied day after day.  


Intro to K9 Nose Work® 

This class focuses on building your dog's desire to hunt for food indoors and in containers, and is a prerequisite to our more advanced nose work classes. You'll be surprised at how much you and your dog learn in this foundation class, which will give you the tools you and your dog need to successfully solve more challenging problems in the Intro to Odor and Continuing Nose Work classes.

Continuing Nose Work

Dogs are introduced to anise and clove odors in this class as they continue sharpening their search skills, and you'll continue improving your observation and handling skills to be sure you're ready for even the upper levels of competition if you choose to trial with your dog.  However, competition is not an expectation or requirement!  There are plenty of folks in this class who just want to keep their dog happily searching along and this is where you do it.
