Sniff Out new Adventures
Did you know your dog has a superpower? A dog’s sense of smell is up to 100,000 times stronger than humans!
Nosework training is an exciting and rewarding way to have fun with your dog! Based on the same principles used by search and rescue dogs and police detection dogs, your pup will use their nose to find a hidden target scent, such as birch, anise, or clove, in various locations and scenarios. Through nosework training, we will teach your pup to search and find the target scent and alert you to its presence.
Nosework training will improve your dog’s confidence and focus, while providing them with new mental and physical challenges. It is the perfect activity for high energy dogs and will help create a stronger bond between you and your pup.
Please note: Completion of one of our full-length training programs is required for enrollment in nosework training classes.
