Our Mission

NEW 2022 K9 Nose Work(R) Classes Starting Soon!

K9 Nose Work® is a fun, safe dog sport which creates a deeper bond and mutual enjoyment between you and your K9 companions. Learn the basics of this new and immensely popular dog sport. Classes are open to any dog and person of any age or physical ability.  This sport provides a fun way to spend quality time with your dog while building confidence for shy and timid dogs.  It challenges dogs to use their nose to hunt for the odors we want them to find; in the beginning it is the “primary” odor of food and then later on in subsequent sessions the search transitions to the desired odors - birch, anise, and clove.  Handlers learn to observe the dog’s body language to determine where the odor is hidden.

In the Intro 6-week session we build the dog’s desire to hunt using fun techniques for dog and handler while building a positive working relationship between you and your dog. We train you to read and understand your dog’s unique & subtle behaviors while hunting, problem solving, and communicating when they have located the source of the hunt.  The exposure to different things and the hunting and problem solving benefit timid and shy dogs by building confidence while also helping to calm the more energetic or reactive dog. 

Subsequent 6-week sessions progress through different levels where dogs learn to hunt in various interior areas, a wide range of exterior areas, on the outer surfaces of different types of vehicles, and different types of containers;   the goal being competition in nose work trials or just having more advanced fun with your dog. 

Pre-registration is required as class size is limited to allow each student multiple searches.  Classes will have lecture and practical components.
