Nose Sport Classes

With a keen sense of smell – 100,000 times stronger than humans – dogs are often used to find lost people and animals, drugs, avalanche and disaster victims, and even to detect cancer.

Tracking is a canine sport that demonstrates a dog’s natural ability to recognize and follow a scent and is the foundation of canine search and rescue work. Unlike obedience and rally trials, where dogs respond to the handler’s commands, in tracking the dog is completely in charge, for only he knows how to use his nose to find and follow the track. For many, the greatest pleasure of tracking is the hours spent outside training and interacting with their dogs.

NoseWork is based on working detection dogs. While working as a team with their handler, the Nosework program allows any breed and type of dog to respond to specific target odors by using their natural olfactory abilities. The specific target odors are placed in a variety of environments from containers on the floor to vehicles and much more!
