Nose Work Odors

For dogs who have developed solid skills and confidence in finding their food source with a variety of challenges and locations. In this class, they will be introduced to their first scent (sweet birch). The scent and food treats are paired together repeating the box work, indoor, outdoor, and vehicle challenges introduced in Intro to Nose Work. As the scent becomes important to the dog, handling and hides continue and become more challenging. Intro to Odor is structured into (three) six week sessions. (box drill, pairing up with the food, interior searches and exterior -vehicle searches)

NOTE: Additional sessions may be needed to meet all the challenges as determined by the instructor.  

Class Information:


  • Dogs have to be at least 4 months old, current on Rabies, DHPP, & Bordetella vaccinations, and must be crate trained (dogs are crated while not actively searching).
  • Successful completion of Intro to NW I, II and III classes.

Cost: $150 per 6 class session (cash price)
