K9 Nose Work Classes - Anaheim, Ca

Uncover your dog's natural talent for Nose Work

Teach your dog to search for hidden scents in this fast-growing dog sport

What is K9 Nose Work?

K9 Nose Work is a scent work activity and competitive dog sport that highlights your dog’s greatest natural talent – their nose!


It starts with getting your dog excited about using their nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes. As your dog grows more confident with their nose, the game expands to sniffing out hidden “target odors” or essential oils, and alerting you in order to get their reward.


As you and your dog progress, you will hone your searching skills and teamwork in increasingly challenging environments, from indoor searches to outdoor and even vehicle searches in various locations. You’ll be amazed at what your dog’s nose can do!

Any dog can play

Every dog has the natural abilities to sniff and to experience the joy of Nose Work. Dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds are welcome. Shy, fearful, or reactive dogs all love K9 Nose Work, because dogs are always crated and separated. No prior obedience training or dog sport experience is required!
