Intro to K9 Nosework

Please call 864-314-1804 for enrollment details! 

Your dog will learn to use his natural scenting abilities to find hidden treats or objects and lead you to them. You won’t believe how fun it is to watch your dog’s light bulb come on in this low-impact sport designed for high-level mental stimulation.

Intro to Odor

More fun with your dog’s sniffer! This course will introduce your dog to one of the key Nosework scents used in competition—birch—while you build your ability to read your dog to help her refine her searching. We’ll begin to increase search difficulty, possibly even moving to outdoor and car searches as teams are ready

Continuing Nose-work 1 & 2

We’ll tackle more difficult searches while your dog works two new scents- anise and clove—and you build your handling skills to assist his success. We’ll also introduce the skills needed to compete in this sport.
