What is Nose Work?

Nose Work is a dog sport invented when scent detection trainers who also competed in agility had dogs (and clients with dogs) who retired from agility. That is, they developed the sport to keep their dogs entertained and out of trouble. Nose Work uses dogs’ natural scenting ability to find a q-tip dabbed with a drop of some essential odor. Unlike other dog sports, the dogs know what to do; it’s the handler’s job to stay out of the way and learn how to read his/her dog.

Any dog can do nose work. The Founders built in mechanisms for reactive dogs to participate. It’s great for environmentally-sensitive dogs too because their desire to find the odor source is so strong that it overcomes any concerns about new places.
