Are you looking for something fun to do with your dog? Is your dog reactive, shy or nervous? Do you need more mental stimulation for your dog?
Then K9 Nose Work® is for you!!!
K9 Nose Work® is suitable for all dogs. Any breed, any age. In K9 Nose Work, dogs learn how to search for specific odours and find the source. Dogs start by searching for their favourite food or toy reward hidden in a variety of environments, increasing the challenges and adding new search skills as the dog progresses. The target odours used in K9 Nose Work® are birch, anise, and clove. Once target odours are introduced to the dog, he will search for the odour only and find its source, then get rewarded by his handler with his favourite food or toy reward.
No prior training required. High energy dogs burn calories as they race around on the hunt. Aging or disabled dogs can flex their brain muscles as they puzzle out the search at their own pace.
All classes are run by Certified Nose Work Instructors (CNWI)
