Happy #workingdogwednesday also known as the do more with your dog series!
This week I wanted to talk about one of my favorite sports that you can do with your dog. Nose Work!
"Nosework is a canine sport created to mimic professional detection dog tasks. One dog and one handler form a team. The dogs must find a hidden target odor, often ignoring distractors, and alert the handler. After the dog finds the odor they are rewarded with food or a toy."
There are TONS of places in the area that offer nose work classes so go try one out! Your dog will love using their natural senses and you'll love being able to do something fun with your dog! You can even go online to places like Amazon to find things like snuffle mats, scent work kits, and boxes used for training nose work.
