K9 Nose Work


alt Note: Dogs with aggression towards humans are not eligible for enrollment.

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. "K9 Nose Work" is a great new sport that's sweeping the nation, and J9's K9s is proud to bring you these terrific classes! You'll learn to use scent detection training to give your dog a fun activity that will build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy. Whether or not you decide to compete for titles in NACSW (National Association of Canine Scent Work) Trials, you and your dog will have a blast!

"You're hooked as soon as you see your dog's face when he realizes that he will be rewarded for using his nose." 

- Whole Dog Journal, August 2009

J9's K9s Instructors work with participants one-on-one in these fabulous classes, teaching observational skills and handling techniques that support the dogs in successfully locating odors in "hides" of varying difficulty.

alt Because student/dog teams will be working individually, your dog must be able to stay quietly in a crate in the training facility to be eligible for these classes.
