What is K9 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!
What is unique about Nosework and K9 sports detection is that dogs of all shapes and sizes can succeed.
Dogs that are environmentally reactive or fearful have done remarkably well. Dogs that may have had a difficult time working in a class setting do extremely well because only one dog works at a time.
Scent Detection is Fun for your Dog!
