Nose Work | Scent Detection For Fun

This is an exciting new sport which teaches the dog to use its nose to find a specific scent on cue, and then tell their handler that they’ve found it and when ready the teams can advance to harder finds that will be held in interior and exterior environments.

Nose work is for all dogs and the dog must be enrolled in our obedience program or have had a trainer evaluation to participate in this fun class!

Each dog will be worked individually during the class. Dogs will need to rest calmly while waiting on their turn.
