Introduction to K9 Nose Work


Over the six-week session, your dog will be challenged with scent game exercises in the four elements: indoors, outdoors, containers, and vehicles.

Learn to read your dog's body language and understand how odours travel.

No prior experience is needed & most dogs are suited to K9 Nose Work. Note: DOGS MUST BE ABLE TO WAIT SAFELY IN YOUR CAR BETWEEN TURNS searching.

Priority for new spots will go to current students & then those on the wait list will be notified.

Dogs can search for treats that you bring

We intend to follow the philosophy and methodology of K9 Nose Work® as developed by the founders of the activity, to the best of our understanding.

Providing physical and mental exercise for our dogs is the best way to keep them happy and healthy. It also helps to decrease or eliminate problem behaviour. Dogs with dog reactivity are welcome in class as only one dog is inside.




Dogs have amazing noses and live in a world of scent. While humans primarily use their eyes to gather information, our dog friends use their noses.

Nose Work taps into a dog's instinct to hunt.

Dogs LOVE the game and get very excited about searching. It is a beautiful thing to watch dogs use their noses in such a natural way.

Every dog - big, small, bold, timid, old, young, and those with special needs love to participate. Join a class and watch the fun begin.

Testimonials

"My dog, Shiloh and I have been involved in Bonnie's Nose Work classes for two years. She is a highly knowledgeable instructor who inspires her (human) students with her kindness, enthusiasm, and encouragement. She is always learning the most current methods of teaching and the best way to move forward with our dogs. Speaking of dogs, she is their most fervent champion; she reminds us often of the importance of listening and learning from them. Whether it's private dog training, Puppy Kindergarten, Teen Manners classes, or Nose Work, if you decide to come to Ocean Park Dog Training, you've come to the right place. If I could give her 6 stars, I would."

Jacci and Shiloh

"Just wanted to say thank you for the class last night - Tessie had a great time, and it was wonderful to learn how to channel her natural hunting instinct. She was exhausted last night - no small feat! I look forward to learning more from you as the classes go on, and hopefully implementing some of the techniques with Cooper (the Beagle)."
