Scent Detection

The innovative dog sport of Nosework and K9 sport detection teaches the dog to use its olfactory ability (nose) to find a trained odor source (essential oil's), and then tell the handler that they have found the source of the odor.  Sport Detection utilizes the dog's natural ability to hunt by using its nose. Most importantly your dog has fun.  Compared with other K9 scent training, you and your dog are not limited to specific areas.

K9 Sport Detection can be done anywhere, anytime!
