K9 Nose Work® Docs

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!
