Introduction to K9 Nose Work Seminar - Sunday, March 3 - 4:15 pm

When: 03-03-2019

Canine Scentwork/Nosework is one of the fastest growing dog sports in the nation!

Nose Work is a fun and enriching sport that all dogs and their owners can enjoy. Using their keen sense of smell and their natural ability to hunt, dogs can learn to search for a toy, treat, or specific scent. Katheryn Woods, certified instructor for the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW) will be speaking on the benefits of K9 Nose Work, activity vs competition, venues, and methods of training. The seminar will include a live demonstration of K9 Nose Work in action. $25 per person. Registration is now open on our website; or you can pay cash at the door.

Please note: this seminar is for people only (no dogs).

You can learn more about K9 Nose Work at http://k9nosework.com/. For more information about this seminar, please contact our Agility Instructor, Alyssa Partlo, at agility@chattanoogaobedienceclub.org.
