Whether you call it Nose Work, Scent Work, or Scent Detection, you can easily channel your dog's natural sniffing and scenting instincts into a fun activity for both ends of the leash!
What is Nose Work?
Nose Work is a recreational activity dog owners can enjoy with their canine companions. Some people like the camaraderie, sport and excitement of competing with other owners in Nose Work or Scent Work Trials, while others enjoy the simple pleasure of spending time doing something fun with their dogs. Either way, you can let your dog sniff his way to success with the dog sport that’s sweeping the nation!
