K9 Nose Work Tryouts
Are you looking for a new fun activity with your canine companion? Come on out and try the latest new sport called K9 Nose Work. K9 Nose Work is actually detection-dog training in which your dog eventually learns to search for and to find small metal tins filled with Q-tips scented with oils of birch, anise or clove. This fun sport teaches you how to access your dog's natural desire to hunt through positive reinforcement. In addition to nurturing a bond with your dog, these classes build confidence, even in most timid dogs, and is a venue where active dogs burn off energy and learn to focus on the task while engaging in and practicing their natural instincts of hunting and scenting. K9 Nose Work classes are exhilarating for both dog and handler. Participants with all types of dogs are enjoying the benefits of a positive working relationship that naturally develops when you are hunting together as a team! All participating dogs must be at least three months old and be able to walk on a leash. No special equipment or treats required. Please note that dogs are crated when not working the floor.
