Nose Work

The nose KNOWS!

Nose Work Foundation with Andrea Dobson


As soon as puppies are born, they use their noses. Way before they can see or hear…this 6-week class will hone that innate sense and introduce independent searching, drive and problem solving when searching for a specific odor.

This introductory class is very hands off for the handler, and dogs will be searching for food (primary reinforcer) in different setups and environments. Dogs will be working one at a time, so dogs that are resting in between runs will need to be quietly crated. Handlers are encouraged to watch other dogs work, to help understand the different working styles, and learn about the characteristics of how odor travels.

Each session will start with a short classroom portion and then dogs will be working through the rest of the class time.

These classes will be recorded, and a photography waiver will be provided at the first night of class.
