Build Confidence. Have FUN!!

K9 Nose Work®

K9 Nose Work® is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually 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 dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.

Whether you want to compete in Nose Work events or just have FUN with your dog – we have the classes for you!

Introduction to K9 Nose Work ®

All dogs will start in Introduction to K9 Nose Work ®.  In this class your dog will be encouraged to use his nose to hunt.  Dogs will learn to search boxes and various containers scattered throughout a search area. Searches will become more difficult, and they will learn to solve puzzles to get to the source of the odor. Dogs will become more confident in doing this and will have FUN!  Handlers learn to read their dog and see what they look like when they’ve caught odor. This class is excellent for nervous/shy dogs and is also great for dogs that don’t do well in a regular class setting.  Please contact your instructor before class if your dog needs extra space.  Most dogs are very comfortable searching without the help of their handler by the end of this class.  All dogs work alone with their handler and are required to be crated or confined in their vehicle (weather depending).

Private Nose Work Lesson – Single

Attending regular Nose Work classes is important if you would like a well-rounded sniffer.  However, if there is something that isn’t being covered in class, a private lesson is the perfect way to concentrate on specific issues; for example, box crushing or creating a stronger indication.  A private lesson is also a great way to get some trial specific practice in.  If your dog is not appropriate for class, a private lesson may work out better for your dog.

These lessons last 45 minutes.

Prerequisite: None
Number of Sessions: 1
Max. Number of Dogs: 1
Cost: $75

Private Nose Work Lesson – 3 Pack

The Private Nose Work Lesson – 3 Pack is the perfect option if your dog is not appropriate for the group class setting, you can’t make it to our regularly scheduled classes or you just want to work one-on-one with one of our Certified Nose Work Instructors.

These lessons last 30 minutes and the cost is $150.00 for 3 lessons.  We suggest students book these lessons every other week.

We can cover everything from Introduction to K9 Nose Work through Trial Prep in these lessons.  If your dog has issues waiting his or her turn in the crate, we can work on that in these lessons also.

Prerequisite: None
Number of Sessions: 3
Max. Number of Dogs: 1
Cost: $150
