K9 Nose Work:

What is Nose Work??

Nose work was inspired by working detection dogs such as: search & rescue dogs, bomb sniffing dogs, drug dogs etc. K9 Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. This new sport is easy to learn & builds dogs’ confidence and focus while also providing a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise. ANY dog & handler can do nose work! Reactive dogs, handicapped dogs, older dogs- ANYONE!

K9 Nose Work is easy to teach & can be practiced in your own home! It starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out his favorite toy or treat hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced, and competition skills are taught. Our Nose Work classes are taught for 1 hour a week for 6 weeks & are instructed by Louise Daigle *Note: Dogs not actively working will be crated while each dog works the boxes.
