K9 Nose Work 

K9 Nose Work 

For all ages

K9 Nose work s a fun and creative game to play with your dog and helps you to tap into one of their strongest instincts; using their noses! Scent work is a great way to:

  • Tire out exuberant dogs

  • Help young dogs gain confidence

  • Help older dogs get mental stimulation and exercise without having to take long daily walks

  • Allow fearful dogs to partake in a fun new activity without fear of negative interactions as there is ZERO dog to dog interactions

  • Much more!

We offer Intro to K9 Nosework, Intro to Odour, and Continuing Odour Nosework classes. These classes are  typically ongoing, with a few breaks throughout the year to accommodate for weather. If you would like to participate you can follow the link below each class description to get added to the appropriate  waitlist. Once you are signed up for the waitlist you will receive an email with more info when our next set is about to start!

Recommended gear:

Housing of dogs during class: 

  • All dogs are to be kept in your vehicle during class, unless they are pottying or coming in for their run. 

  • If your dog needs support remaining in the vehicle it is recommended to bring someone to stay with them.

  • There is to be ZERO dog to dog contact, even if dogs already know each other
