K9 Nose Work
K9 Nose Work is a super fun activity to do with your dog. Every dog loves sniffing and in nose work class, that’s exactly what they get to do! Using fun exercises that any dog can do, together we will train your pup to be a detection dog – except instead of finding drugs or bombs, they will find their favorite smelly treat (salmon jerky works great!) Dogs of all activity levels have a blast playing nose work and no previous training is required. Only one dog is in the room working at a time, so feisty dogs are welcome! Come try this new dog sport!
Includes class handouts, clicker, and certificate of completion.
Dogs adopted from Lollypop Farm receive a $10 discount on their first class.
