BIOTHANE LEASHES & LONG LINES
All vendors below sell the easy-to-clean durable Biothane leashes. They each have their own names for them, but there are 2 basic types: rounded rope style vs flat style. You’re welcome to try out my leashes in class to see which kind you prefer. I recommend 12 to 15 ft length leashes for nose work purposes, with 12 being for small or slow-moving dogs and 15 being for big or fast-moving dogs.
Palomine Lines – 1/4″ Rope Line ~or~ 1/2″ to 5/8″-wide lines.
K9 Ruff Stuff (Oahu-based) – Tracking Line or 3/8″-wide Micro Leash (you’ll have to custom order 12-15 ft lengths)
Mid-Atlantic K9 – 1/4″ Rope ~or~ 1/2″-wide Schutzhund Tracking Lead

ODOR KITS and NOSE WORK SUPPLIES
How to make scented swabs (video tutorial)
All Good Dogs
The Starter Kit with Anise/Birch/Clove includes not only pre-scented q-tips and tins, but also the oils which will allow you to make additional scented q-tips.
You will need to order the NACSW Essential Oils as well as the NACSW Multi-Odor Kits (listed under Complete Training Kits).
The K9 Nose
The K9 Nose’s Deluxe NACSW kit is similar to the All Good Dogs kit, but they have smiley face tins instead of rectangular tins. It’s cute, although paired food falls off more easily from circular tins.
Paws 4 Fun
The Complete Kit is similar to the others above, and also includes Quake Hold, the sticky stuff that lets you attach tins to various surfaces.
Bare Bones Nosework Supplies
The Nosework Travel Kit does not include oils but it’s an affordable way to get started. They also sell snazzy-looking camouflage tins!
Note to participants: For those who plan to participate in UKC and AKC events, you may purchase additional essential oils such as cypress, vetiver and myrrh.
