NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CANINE SCENT WORK
One of the most exciting sports to come along in quite a while, the sport of canine "nosework" affords dog sport enthusiasts an opportunity to engage in a unique form of dog training. The best part of it all is that any breed or mix breed dog is welcome to engage in this fun and exciting activity. Dogs are trained to indicate the presence of three designated essential oils: Birch, Anise and Clove.
The scents are located in various places which include rows of boxes, indoor venues such as a warehouse, outdoor locations and the exterior of vehicles. As each title is gained the dog can move up. Presently there are three titles offered by this fledgling organization.
Crawmer's Animal Training students have taken an interest in the new sport and we have several dogs who are actively participating.
The joy of working with a dog is a new experience for many people. Others are already heavily involved in one sport or another. Canine Nosework is a great activity since involvement in it can be done at any time and with any dog, as a sole interest or as an addition to agility, obedience, therapy dog visits or any other activity.
Put your dog's nose to work and you will both have a lot of fun!
