K9 Nose Work® Shelter Project - Thinking about K9 Nose Work® at your shelter? I have successfully introduced this activity to shelters and to a range of rescue groups, and would love to do more. Contact me if you'd like me to introduce your dogs and staff and volunteers to this fabulous activity.

Introduction to K9 Nose Work®  -  a 9 hour course, usually run over 3 hours x 3 weeks, for those wanting to get started in nose work or scent work.   Dogs learn to find their favourite food or toy, while building up their desire to hunt, while their owners learn to read and support their dogs during this activity, building the bond between dog and owner.  

No pre-requisites, except for a dog and handler interested in having FUN.  No obedience required.


Introduction to K9 Nose Work® Online - the foundation course available as a self paced online course

Just like in the live course, dogs learn to find their favourite food or toy, while building up their desire to hunt, while their owners learn to read and support their dogs during this activity, building the bond between dog and owner.  All from the comfort of their own home.

This course is ideal for many dogs and their humans who would not usually be able to attend a course:  anxious, shy, environmentally sensitive, healthy issues, live too far away, lockdowns, and so on.

No pre-requisites, except for a dog and handler interested in having FUN.  No obedience required.

You are given 6 months to complete the course.  The cost includes all instructional videos and information, and my support and feedback


Introduction to Odour -  a 9 hour course, usually run over 3 hours x 3 weeks, only open to those who have completed an Introduction to K9 Nose Work® course run by a Certified Nose Work Instructor.   Dogs learn to find a specific target odour while continuing to develop their desire to hunt and increase their stamina to work odour.   Their owners learn more about how their dogs work when on odour, and continue to learn to support their dogs.
