What is Nosework?
Nosework is one of the fastest growing dog sports in the world. It’s modeled after real world detection.
In Nosework, your dog searches for essential oils, usually on cotton swab. You may search inside buildings, out in the open, boxes and luggage, on vehicles and even buried in the ground! Every search is different and exciting. This is a timed sport where the dog’s skill and handling come together.
Nosework is a sport that every dog and handler can do. It’s a great way to focus hyper dogs and calm nervous dogs. You will be surprised how Nosework can build confidence. Plus it’s FUN!
