An introduction to the new exciting sport/activity of Nose Work.  This is when dogs get to be dogs with the primary goal to have fun!  We focus on building their natural hunting skills. Each week we add more challenging puzzles which in turn builds confidence  – all using boxes, rewards and the amazing ability of your dog’s nose. 

While students wait for their turn to find hides, Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), Carly Davis coaches students on an emergency recall (coming when called) cue that will stand out as boldly someone in a wedding gown that your dog won't ignore!  To enroll, contact Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI), Gina Baker of the Nose Work Connection
