Nosework (Scent Detection) Training Packages: Any dog regardless of age, breed, size or temperament can enjoy and benefit from this activity.

Typically, 5 lessons will provide your pup with a good baseline for Nosework. This package is $200.00. Our Nosework Proficient package is $400.00 and includes 10 lessons. *Some dogs may rapidly excel at nose work and do even more advanced searches in the sessions and some dogs may need more sessions to complete the curriculum. Nose Work is all positive and training is conducted at your dog’s learning pace for optimum results and to ensure the dog is conducting thorough and accurate searches.
