Inspired by working detection dogs K9 Nosework is the fun search and scenting activity for all dogs and people. This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs and provides a safe way to keep fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.
K9 Nosework starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a tasty treat hidden in several boxes, then 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.
Very young puppies through senior citizens who are losing their eyesight enjoy the game of K9 Nosework. If you start playing this game, be prepared for a lifetime of fun!
Prerequisite: Puppy class. Knowledge of positive motivational training and use of a marker is helpful.
