K-9 Nose Work

The hottest new form of dog sports that is taking the east and west coasts by storm and is growing in popularity here in Colorado!  Nose Work is a dog sports activity based on training principles that came out of professional dog detection work – that is, dogs that are used professionally for drug or bomb detection work.  In this type of training, humans are taught to stay out of the dog’s way and let the dog do what comes so naturally and joyfully to them:  using their uncanny natural scenting abilities to find treats and later on, specific odors through hides that are done in a class setting.  The dogs just LOVE doing this and their humans are thrilled to see their dog so happy.
