Scent Work

Our dogs love to sniff and find things. In fact, dogs have such a great sense of smell that they are often used to locate illegal drugs, explosives, bed bugs, endangered species and even cancer. Scent sports such as Nosework and Barn Hunt aren’t just exciting competitive activities to enjoy with your dog, but they build confidence, focus and teamwork essential for all your favorite activities and a happy home life too. Plus, scent sports are just plain fun! This four week class develops search drive and motivation to work, odor recognition and a clear focused response behavior for both Nosework and Barn Hunt. Our goal is a happy dog that will not only efficiently and methodically search for and identify target odors in a variety of environments and situations, but WANTS to work and play with their handler. There are no pre-requisites for this class. Dogs must be at least 16 weeks of age to participate.
