Introduction to NoseWork

The beginning nose training for dogs involves the introduction of searching for and finding either food or a toy, in boxes or draws. The purpose of the introduction to nosework is to get the dog enthusiastically searching for its reward.


NoseWork Lessons

Intermediate dog nose work starts the transition from food to Odor only and introducing the first scent, Birch. The nosework training moves into more challenging types of searches.
