K9 Nose Work is a sport based on professional detection work. Based on methods from professional work, dogs are trained to search for scented oils.
Description: Dogs will learn to search interior rooms, exterior areas, vehicles, and containers. K9 Nose Work does offer competition titling programs. However, it is also a good way for your dog to burn off extra energy and let him or her use his most powerful organ: the nose.
