 K9 Nose Work®
Info Center

K9 Nose Work is an exciting new sport for dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages. Dogs learn to search for novel scents in a manner very similar to professional detection dogs.

K9 Nose Work allows your dog to develop the natural drive to hunt and find. It’s a very positive experience and dogs are always rewarded. K9 Nose work is an excellent addition to a behavior modification program for shy or reactive dogs. It’s a fun bonding experience for you and your dog., Their is a bonus too: Dogs go home tired, and it’s pretty easy for the human end of the leash!

Manners & Training Info

We specialize in behavior problem solving as well as skills training.

Many difficult dogs simply need clear and consistent rules and direction to be successful with their human family. Almost every dog has the potential to learn.
