Up to Snuff

Author: Sally Bushwaller | Date: April 5, 2013

The Spring I session is coming to a close, and my students in K9 Nose Work have been doing an unbelievable job. Every time their dogs do a search, they become more confident and happier. Nose Work is so beneficial for dogs. It is extremely therapeutic for dogs to be allowed to sniff and hunt for scent.

I will no longer be teaching Nose Work for AnimalSense after this session, but scent work will continue here with the Getting Nosey classes. If your dog has never done a class like this, let him or her experience the fun. Your dog will thank you for it.

Share the joy of Nose Work with your dog.

I am sharing some videos of both my beginning and advanced students doing Nose Work. Enjoy!
Beginner: The following videos are from the night that we did elevated hides for the first time.

Heather: very tentative about searching when she started, now much more confident.

Nola: very enthusiastic searcher

Continuing class: These dogs are more advanced and doing more difficult searches. They are now all searching for the scent Birch.

Gina: some of these boxes have a food distraction in them. Only one box has the target odor in it. This is her first session doing odor and she is doing great!

Scruffy: This is 13 year old Scruffy. Here he is doing a very difficult hide which is hanging in midair. Scruffy proves your dog is never too old to learn new things.

Po: Po is anxious about boxes. In this hide, he faces his fear and nails it!

Ella: Ella is 11 years old. She has really bloomed in Nose Work. She is definitely happier and less anxious. In this video she is doing a very difficult elevated hide.

Congratulations to all of these students and keep up the great work!


We love our dogs too much to want anything but the best for them, and AnimalSense is it!
