K9 Nose Work®

Nose Work classes

We are SUPER excited to bring K9 Nose Work® to the Illawarra!

  • Have a dog who can't participate in other sports or classes due to reactivity or mobility?
  • Have your very own sleuth who will LOVE an activity involving their nose!
  • Have a timid, shy or fearful dog?
  • Have a scent-detection dog in the making?

K9 Nose Work® will suit all of the above & more!

Our K9 Nose Work® experience begins with a Beginners K9 Nose Work® course. This outlines the power of the canine nose, builds drive & excitement for the search, and introduces your dog to searching indoors, outdoors & even a vehicle!

All classes are run 1 dog at a time, meaning when they are not working they must be resting in a crate or in their car. This makes it an ideal activity for dogs who are not comfortable around other dogs, as we manage the space very carefully to ensure all dogs participate in comfort.

Following our Beginners K9 Nose Work® course, you can join our casual Ongoing K9 Nose Work® classes. These are designed to allow people to drop-in to class when it suits, & continue their dog's K9 Nose Work® journey. We also have Introduction to Odour classes, as well as ongoing classes for dogs on odour. The first course is just the tip of the iceberg!

See our Class Locations & Times page for start dates, or all date information is available when you REGISTER ONLINE

Who will K9 Nose Work® suit?
K9 Nose Work® suits dogs of all breeds, ages (well 6 months & up) & abilities!  It can be especially great for reactive dogs, or dogs stressed around other dogs, as all the work is done one dog at a time.  It can be amazing watching shy dogs increase in confidence as we unleash the power of the nose!
