K9 Nose Work® is a new and fast-growing scenting sport for companion dogs and is inspired by the training and work of law enforcement detection dogs.  The sport develops your dog’s natural hunting and scenting abilities to find target odors for fun or competition.  Any dog breed (or mix), any age, activity level, or physical abilities can participate.  Because only the working dog is in the working area during a search, dogs that are uncomfortable around other dogs or those with environmental issues can learn and thrive in this new sport.  An obedient dog is not necessary!  All dogs must be able to be “car crated” or quietly wait their turn in a covered crate.  Owners must provide crates and covers if crating indoors.  Students may run up to two dogs.  One class fee per dog.  Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.
