Nose Work | Scent Detection

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. This class will teach the foundation basics and get your dog using his natural scenting abilities. Nose work is for all dogs and no per-requisite is required for this class.  Each dog will be worked individually during the class. Dogs will need to rest calmly while crated and/or be kept in the car (weather permitting) between working times.

Camp Miracle Paws offers two six-week Nose Work Beginner classes (Monday PM and Tuesday AM) and a three-week class (alternates levels between Beginner and/or Intermediate and/or Advanced) on Thursday PM.

  • Beginner: Boxes, elevation, thresholds, leash handling, independent searching of Interiors on primary reward.
  • Intermediate: Independent searching of interiors, exteriors and vehicles on primary reward. Beginner is prerequisite.
  • Advanced: Working with Birch odor searching Interiors, Exteriors, Vehicles and Containers. Intermediate is prerequisite.

These fun classes will begin late June/early July when our new training facility opens it doors!
