Nose Work

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!

Unleash Your Pup's Inner Detective

Calling all canine search superstars! Ready to graduate from basic nose work? This course is the perfect next step for teams who've aced the intro or odor levels.

We'll take your dog's sniffing skills to exciting new places – the great outdoors and even vehicles! We'll use your dog's favorite rewards to keep them motivated as they explore these new search areas. For teams already familiar with a target odor (like birch oil), we'll crank up the challenge with searches in adjacent outdoor spaces.

So get ready for some tail-wagging fun! This class is all about:

  • Engaging outdoor searches: Dress for the weather and unleash your dog's inner explorer!
  • Vehicle searches: Put those noses to the test in a new element.
  • Enhanced skills: Build on your dog's natural sniffing abilities and refine their search techniques.
  • Stronger bond: Deepen your connection with your furry friend through this rewarding activity.

Don't forget the treats! We'll provide all the training and guidance, you just bring your enthusiasm and your dog's favorite smelly motivators.

Sign up today and watch your dog blossom into a nose work champion!
