Intro to Canine Nosework


ADULT HANDLERS 18+ (16+ w/ adult)
Nosework is a fun activity and sport for all dogs and is ideal for ones needing more confidence, senior dogs, young dogs, super energetic dogs, and reactive dogs. Dogs love to hunt & sniff. Nosework explores this wonderful behavior in our dogs. Each dog works individually, so no worries if your dog doesn’t do well in a group class. They also work independently; in your first classes you’ll learn to observe what your dog is doing when hunting. This progresses to the two of you working as a team to cover a search are to find a “hide.”

Pre-requisite: Participants must be able to keep physical control of their dog on a leash. We reserve the right to restrict any dog’s participation for any reason, for the safety of other dogs and participants. Evidence of current vaccinations required.
