K9 Nose Work® is a new dog sport modeled after professional scent detection dogs that is different than the sport of tracking. This sport builds on the dogs’ natural ability to hunt and detect scent, and determine its location. Through training, the dogs will learn to find 3 specific scents hidden in the environment, including indoors, outdoors and on vehicles!

Unlike other dog sports, K9 Nose Work® can be performed by any dog regardless of breed, temperament, or age. It is a wonderful game for dogs recovering from medical issues and dogs in their Golden years, still wanting to participate in a low impact highly enjoyable activity. Active dogs and retired sports competitors can also enjoy the mentally stimulating aspect of scent work. Reactive dogs can comfortably learn this sport due to the fun, controlled environment.
This sport is a great way to keep your dogs active through the cold winters and can be done in your home. K9 Nose Work® can be played at home for those not wishing to compete and it can be taken to a high level of expertise for those who welcome competition.

"Kathy's background in search and rescue may be why she is such a phenomenal instructor or maybe it is her background in teaching. I think it is a combination of the two. Her passion for the sport is obvious and contagious, making class so much fun. Bree has such a positive attitude and she is a "worker" - It makes me happy watching her do what she loves. If you are looking for a bonding experience with your best friend, I suggest trying Nose Work. It is something that any dog can do."
