Introduction to Nose Work

K9 Nose Work® is the fastest growing, most exciting, most universally accessible dog sport. Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This class focuses on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog's natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It's a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy, and for you to be dazzled by your dog's scenting talents.

Note: 1 1/2 hour long classes
Prerequisite: Proof of appropriate vaccinations or titers.

Puppy Noses!

This class is structured just for puppies under 1 year old to introduce them to Nose Work in the most supportive setting possible, and uses their innate curiosity and lack of inhibitions to jump start them into the sport. Nose Work is the ideal way to both bond with your puppy and keep them safely occupied while burning up that wild puppy energy. A joyous scenting romp for owners and their puppies!

Note: 1 1/2 hour long classes
Prerequisite: Proof of appropriate vaccinations.

Introduction to Odor

This class advances the dog's scent discrimination skills taught in the Introduction to Nose Work Class. All dogs are taught to identify the same first scent, which is a natural essential oil.
