What is K9 Nose Work?
The exciting sport of K9 Nose Work® has been designed to help you and your dog work together to use their natural desire to hunt with their nose. By providing a constructive outlet, K9 Nose Work® is a sport that challenges dogs both mentally and physically and is a very healthy way for them to release energy.
No previous experience or training is necessary for the teams involved since this wonderful sport is open to dogs and handlers of all breeds and mixes, ages and abilities. Human companions of reactive, shy or nervous dogs will be pleased to know that K9 Nose Work® is a very suitable sport for their dogs. Not only does nose work help to build confidence but each nose work class is set up in a way that only one dog will work at a time therefore limiting any competing motivators or fear inducing stimuli present during the work.
