K9 Nose Work is a fun search and scenting activity that all dogs and people can enjoy. The sport was created to provide an opportunity for the companion and sport dogs to have an outlet for their natural hunting and scenting abilities. In this sport, the dog uses their nose to locate a target scent or odor. This is not tracking, it is odor detection. The advantage of the sport is that it can be done just about anywhere. Don’t know how to exercise your dog when it is freezing outside or when we have 100º temperatures? K9 Nose Work® is the answer!
It starts by getting your dog excited about using his nose to find their favorite toy or food hidden in one of several boxes. As your dog becomes more confident with his nose, the game expands to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. Advanced K9 Nose Work focuses on increasing your dog’s scenting skills by adding special target odors to search for and searching in many different places.
