Have you ever watched a crime-sniffing dog on TV and thought, “I wonder if my dog could do that?” The answer is YES! Your dog has 300 million “olfactory sensors” and in Nose Work I, we teach you and your dog how to find scents in a variety of fun activities. In this class, we start with foundation skills and then graduate to container and interior room searching. Dogs of any age, from young puppies to older dogs, and of any training level can be successful in learning scent detection. It is an extremely fun and fascinating activity that will help build your dog’s confidence as they work through “scent games” and get rewarded for using their nose!
Benefits of Nose Work are:
- Dog burns a lot of physical and mental energy
- Teaches your dog a fun activity that can be done anywhere
- Shy or fearful dogs build confidence and overactive dogs put their energy to work
- Builds a stronger bond between you and your dog
