Nose Work

It is hard to imagine a dog sport that is more natural to a dog than Nose Work! Instead of constantly being told to move along, your dog will be rewarded for using his nose to find a specific odor in the environment. All dogs in the class are worked one at a time and are crated during their down time so even if your dog is unsettled by the presence of other dogs, he can fully participate. Shy dogs gain confidence, distractible dogs gain focus, and busy dogs finally get to excel at a job that tires them out mentally. The owner will be able to more fully appreciate the way his/her dog experiences the world while building a stronger bond of trust and respect with him.

Various levels of Nose Work classes are offered Friday evenings and Saturdays at The Crossing Community Church in New Haven and outdoor locations as weather permits.  A limited number of private/semi-private lessons are also available.  Call or email Judy for current schedules.
