Nosework is a canine sport created to mimic professional scent tasks, such as, drug detection or food detection. The dog and handler work as a team to find a hidden target while ignoring distractors such as food or toys. The three odors used in training are birch, anise, and cloves. After a dog finds the odor, he is rewarded with food or a toy.
Workshops are open to all dogs 6 months and older and limited to 10 participants. Handlers must bring a cardboard box which has flaps and plenty of smelly treats. The handler should collect different size boxes (6-10) for home use.
Workshops are $10 per session for members and $15 per session for non-members unless stated in individual workshops. Workshops are scheduled for 1 to 2 hours. Workshops are scheduled once a month.
