INTRODUCTION TO K9 NOSE WORK®

K9 Nose Work® starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game 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.

Prepare for a lifetime of fun with your dog and K9 Nose Work!

Over this first 6 week class, we will introduce your dog to the art of hunting, boxes and the “primary reward."  Primary reward gives your dog the opportunity to find food without handler involvement and will build canine confidence.

Objectives:

  • Build your dog’s drive to hunt

  • Build your dog’s independence and confidence

  • Teach your dog the importance of boxes and containers

  • Build the handler's observation skills:  recognize when your dog is hunting
