Nose work is a fun new sport based on working K9 detector dogs, this search for a odor activity is virtually for all dogs and people no matter what age. Nose work is a easy to learn sport that helps build confidence and focus, while providing a low impact safe activity to keep dogs healthy and fit through mental and physical activity.
We start by getting your dog excited about using his nose to find a odor, then teach him to find that odor hidden in one of several boxes, then making the game more interesting by having the dog search entire rooms, outside areas, cars and trucks. As your dog grows more confident using his nose, new target odor are introduced and search skills are taught.
Here's a video to get you started training your dog to target a odor.
