K9 Nose Work Classes - Anaheim, Ca

Uncover your dog's natural talent for Nose Work

What is K9 Nose Work?

K9 Nose Work is a scent work game 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. As your dog grows more confident, 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 together through indoor, outdoor, container, and vehicle searches.


Learn about how your dog sees the world, and be amazed at what your dog’s nose can do!

Any dog can play

Every dog can experience the joy of Nose Work. Dogs of all breeds and personalities are welcome.


Shy, fearful, and reactive dogs all love K9 Nose Work. Dogs work one at a time. Each dog is encouraged to grow their skills and confidence at their own pace.


No prior obedience training or dog sport experience is required!
