Nose work

Nose work is a fun search and scenting activity for all dogs and people.  It is an easy to learn activity that builds confidence, focus, and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit through mental and physical exercise.

Following the methods and philosophies of NACSW and Laura Yurchak we will start by getting your dog excited to use his nose seeking a primary reward in boxes.  As they learn the game we will expand the search areas to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced, and competition skills are taught.

Whether you plan to compete or simply enjoy your weekly class nose work provides a life long bonding activity to do with your dog.
