Encourages your dog's natural instincts to sniff and use their nose.
Search for food and build a good relationship as a handler/dog team.
There are numerous official scent work organizations.
Level 1 - Intro to Nose Work
This is a Beginner class for dogs and handlers. Dogs must be at least 4 months old, housebroken and able to work on leash to register for this class.
Dogs use their natural ability to hunt for food. This class builds confidence in the dog and the handler learns to observe the dog's natural scenting behavior.
Level 2 - Intro to Odor
This class introduces the Birch odor. The hunting for odor game continues. The dog builds drive and the handler increases their ability to "read" the dog.
Level 3 - Continuing Nose Work 1
In this class teams move from working odor paired with food to working odor without food pairing. Birch odor is the only odor worked.
Level 4 - Continuing Nose Work 2
This class introduces the Anise and Clove odor.
Level 5 - Advanced Nose Work
Dogs at this level should be working all 3 odors in all four elements (Containers, Interiors, Vehicle and Exterior).
