Nose Play is based on the premise that when it comes to dogs, the nose knows!! This class allows your dog to use their nosiness to hunt for things that are hidden. It's a great way for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn up lots of mental and physical energy. There is even a competitive dog sport that has been developed that tests your dog's ability. Check it out at the National Association of Canine Scent Work website.
Classes are taught by Lil Clark, CPDT who has had the opportunity to learn from the founders of the sport and competes with her own dog.
Open to all dogs (except those with aggression toward people).
