®What Is K9 Nose Work
K9 Nose Work®​
K9 Nose Work® is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people.  This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.
The K9 Nose Work® class concept and sport was created to provide an opportunity for the companion and sport dog to have an outlet for their natural scenting abilities. The classes were inspired by working detection dogs who use their nose to locate a target scent or odour.  
K9 Nose Work® begins with getting your dog excited about using  their nose to seek out a favourite treat or toy hidden in one of many boxes.  The game is then expanded to large interior search areas, exterior areas, containers and vehicles.  As the dog gains confidence, focus and independence searching and the handler develops their skills reading their dogs change in behavour, workingas a team they can go on and search new challenges.

Benefits of K9 Nose Work®

Noses In Motion teaches the dog the game of K9 Nose Work® in a calm and safe environment.  We establish a very positive conditioned emotional response when teaching NoseWork.
It is because of this training methodology that dogs who are reactive, unable to participate in other dog sports or low confidence dogs, benefit from the game of K9 Nose Work®.
Each dog is on their own journey and we here at Noses In Motion respect that.
