Introduction to Odor

Continuing Nose Work

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. “K9 Nose Work” is a great sport that’s swept the nation, and J9’s K9s is proud to bring you these classes for all levels of canine sniffers! 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, 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

Our accomplished K9 Nose Work Instructors work with participants one-on-one in these terrific classes, teaching observational skills and handling techniques that support the dogs as they locate odors in “hides” of varying difficulty.

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

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