K9 Nose Work
Big Mac 15 months old NW 1 High it Trial
With NACSW Certified Canine Nose Work Instructor & ORT Judge Robin Ford
K9 Nose Work is a new dog sport developed by
a team of professional dog trainers that worked with certified search and rescue teams and drug detection dogs. Designed to provide all breed and temperament types with an outlet to use their natural hunting and scenting abilities.
K9 Nose Work builds confidence, provides a mental outlet for your dog and builds a solid foundation for those thinking of getting into Search and Rescue or tracking work while learning the nose work "games" and hunting skills. Our class prepares you to compete in Nose Work Odor Trials if that's your interest. For more info check out www.NACSW.net
In all K9 Nose Work classes, dogs will be worked one at a time.
Dogs not working will be crated; I have crates available in the arena for your use or your dog can be left in your car.
All "types" of dogs are welcome, reactive dogs will wear a red bandana .
