Nosework Class

K9 Nose Work™ is a fun activity for dogs and people designed around your dog’s natural scenting ability and desire to hunt. It provides mental enrichment, helps increase confidence, and is just a lot of fun! K9 Nose Work™ also gives you the opportunity to learn more about and appreciate your dog’s amazing “scent-ability”.

In the beginner classes, class instructors and handlers (that’s you) set up many different situations for dogs to hunt for food rewards with increasing levels of challenge. In the advanced stages, dogs are taught to search for tiny hints of odor and are always rewarded at the end of each hunt.   It’s amazing to see how the dogs get excited about hunting, even in their first class!

For more information, see the official K9 Nose Work™ website: If you’re interested in registering for a 6-week class (approximately one hour per week) or observing a class to see what it’s like, please email Wendy at:, or call Shiloh Veterinary Hospital at (717) 767-0180.
