K9 Nose Work® Classes hosted by Country Canine LLC
Modeled after professional detection dog work, K9 Nose Work is a fun, mentally stimulating activity that allows dogs to do what they do best – use their noses to find things. It is like hunting, but in the realm of nose work they are hunting for target odors and being rewarded with their favorite treats or a toy.
Classes taught by Country Canine will provide the foundation for pursuing scent detection competition through venues such as AKC and NACSW. They will also provide the basics required to participate in Conservation Dogs of Hawaii’s Nose Work for Conservation volunteer program.
Any dog can do nose work, from puppies to seniors, and low energy to high energy dogs. Shy, vision-impaired and reactive dogs can gain confidence and overcome their environmental sensitivities through nose work. Young, active dogs can burn energy through the activity. No obedience or training experience is necessary!
