K9 Nose Work®

K9 Nose Work ® is a fun and exciting game for dogs and their handlers. Founded by professionals in canine detection, designed to give pet dogs and their handlers a fun and easy way to learn and apply scent detection skills. Dogs build their independent hunt drive and learn foundational search skills. Handlers sharpen their observational skills and develop understanding of their dog’s world. K9 Nose Work ® is an activity that uses real-world environments and can be done almost anywhere. Every search has the potential to be a dramatically different & highly stimulating experience for both dog & handler. No prior training is required. Good for the shy or fearful dog to build confidence and the overactive dogs to put their energy into fun searches. Best of all, nose work builds a stronger relationship between dog and handler.

Please note that due to the relocation of Desilu Dogs from Ellicott City, Md to full time RV living, training opportunities for 2023 are limited online consultations via Zoom. You can follow Sara’s journey on Facebook at Bald Dogs Road Trip.
