K9 Nose Work Classes - Anaheim, Ca

Uncover your dog's natural talent for Nose Work

About K9 Nose Work

K9 Nose Work is a scent work activity and competitive dog sport that highlights your dog’s natural talent for detecting and tracking odors.


In K9 Nose Work, dogs learn to sniff out certain essential oils and to alert their handler once they have located the scented item or “hide”. Teams hone their searching skills 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!

An activity for all dogs

Every dog has the ability to sniff and to experience the joy of Nose Work. Dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds are welcome. No prior obedience training or dog sport experience is required.
