K9 Nose Work Benefits
K9 Nose Work is an excellent way to continue your dog’s training, and is a wonderful compliment to your basic obedience program.
Humans tend to inhibit a dog’s chance to develop the skill of using their nose by doing their job for them. Think about how often you “do that for your dog” and your dog doesn’t have to put effort into developing the skill of using his nose.
You’ll love K9 Nose Work for confidence and relationship building, but you’ll also love it because it’s just plain old FUN!
You can practice at home without special equipment. Many dogs train for a just few minutes at a time and need a long break.
K9 Nose Work will help to build work ethic and endurance in your dog. Through K9 Nose Work, your dog will develop the ability to work much longer.
Engaging in K9 Nose Work enhances the dog’s love of performing a task. This obedience training easier and builds your dog’s willingness to perform tasks when food or reinforcement isn’t present.
Through K9 Nose Work, your dog’s response to Sit, Down, Come, etc. become stronger and faster as the dog builds work ethic.
Instructor Loreen Robbins is a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI) and has personally seen K9 Nose Work transform her once reactive German Shepherd into a confident dog who now travels everywhere competing in the sport of K9 Nose Work and currently at very high levels. Loreen also finds that her dog is far more responsive to basic foundation commands as she continues to progress through Nose Work training. She is noticeably more focused, calmer and significantly more responsive to Loreen through the sport of Nose Work.
