Without a doubt, your dog will love the super fun sport of Nose Work! As explained by the National Association of Canine Scent Work, "K9 Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity that virtually all dogs and their people can enjoy. It starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, the game expands to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. Advanced K9 Nose Work focuses on increasing your dog's scent discrimination skills, adding special target odors to the search, and much more!"
At AnnaBelle's, our nose work classes are taught by Dawn Archer Pizzoferrato, ABCDT.
Nose Work is great for all dogs, regardless of size, age, temperament, breed, or physical ability!
