What is Nose Work?

Nose work is a sport for the pet dog based on genuine scent detection training. It's a wonderful activity for dogs that need a lot of mental and physical stimulation, including those that have a hard time in environments or classes with other dogs. It’s also a great activity for newly adopted dogs as it helps them become more confident in new environments. 

As the sport's popularity grew, other organizations came up with their own versions of Nose Work. The term "Scent Work" is commonly used to incorporate all the versions of this scent detection sport.

What are the benefits of Nose Work?

Nose work classes focus on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of food, toys and exercise.
