Target odors & kits for K9 Nosework

Inspired by working detection dogs, K9 Nose Work is a fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.

K9 Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced, and competition skills are taught.

This team sport consists of one dog and one handler. The dog must find the hidden target odor and alert the handler when found. It is up to the handler to recognize the dogs alert signal and call it. K9 Nosework is a great sport requiring limited resources. It helps build confidence for timid or shy dogs, redirection for rough and high energy dogs, or build focus for unfocused dogs. 

Any time spent interacting with your dog, helps decrease separation anxiety, improve obedience and help form a stronger human-canine bond.
