NOSE (SCENT) WORK is quickly becoming a favorite sport. Nose Work is a positive activity that allows dogs the opportunity to use their strongest natural sense in a way that is fun, engaging, and that builds and strengthens a foundation of trust between the handler and dog. In the sport of Nose Work, dogs are trained to recognize specific odors, and to alert their handlers when the odors are detected. There are no upper age limits for dogs or handlers to this engaging sport. Many owners who have tried Nose Work report that their dogs are much happier and calmer, doing what comes naturally, using their nose!
