K9 Nose Work
The NACSW™ has established the guidelines for certification of K9 Nose Work® instructors. NACSW™ involvement has been to ensure that standards of excellence are met in teaching the activity of K9 Nose Work® to handler / dog teams.
This fun canine sport will teach you how to encourage and develop your dogs amazing sense of smell and natural desire to hunt by sniffing and locating a scent or odor target. K9 nose work will boost your dogs confidence because it is mentally and physically stimulating and rewarding. Dogs use their sense of smell to hunt for their favorite toys or food.
