UKC NOSEWORK

K9 Nose-Work is the newest and fastest growing competitive dog sport! This fun and challenging scent detection program encourages dogs to develop their natural scent-directed hunt drive. Owners and K9s are able to learn and practice scent detection similar to Law Enforcement and Military Working Dogs. Your K9 will learn to harness his natural hunt drive abilities and learn to detect target odors of Birch, Anise, Vetiver, Myrrh and Clove. These Odors will be hidden in containers, vehicles, interior spaces and outdoor spaces. Handlers will learn how to observe their K9 and learn how to recognize change in behavior as their dog searches for and finds the target odor.
