Nose Work is based upon the skills used by professional detection dog teams and turns it into an exciting game.
Nose Work is also mentally stimulating, making it a great calming game for energetic dogs.
The Hobart Dog Training Club has introduced a Club Nose Work Certificate scheme based on the principles of K9 Nose Work
This will enable handlers to work towards the club titles of Nose Work 1, Nose Work 2, and Nose Work 3.
If you've done our Introduction to Nose Work course, come along any Sunday for a chance to work at your own level under the guidance of an instructor.
If you'd like to start Nose Work, we'll be running regular introduction to nose work classes where we teach the basics of handling scent and teaching your dog to find target odours - just contact our Training Coordinator to work out a time.
The following class times are valid every Sunday throughout the training year, unless advised otherwise.
Nose Work Searches will be set up between 12.30 and 1.30 every Sunday
To coordinate instructors, students are encouraged to join the HDTC Sniffers Facebook Group where regular polls are run to estimate attendance each week.
Introduction to Nose Work classes are run in blocks - please register your interest with the front desk
