Use your dog's superpower for fun and competition! Nosework is a new sport that is mushrooming in popularity around the world. Any dog can learn to find and alert to odors - senior dogs, reactive dogs, puppies, big dogs, little dogs, fast dogs and slow dogs.
Kathy teaches the dogs to find odor in the very first lesson.
