K9 Nose Work, often called nose work or scent work generically, is used to talk about the competitive aspect of nose work training for our canine companions. As is evident in the many dogs now actively participating in nose work trials and training, however, we have also seen behavioral improvements and emotional shifts that for many dogs seemed impossible before starting with the activity. More research is being done and shared that supports the overall value of encouraging dog caretakers to become involved in some type of scent work activity. Additionally, not all dogs may enjoy or be suitable for the rigors of competition days, but every dog can enjoy the many aspects of nose work. K9 Nose Work® specifically as designed was shaped to reach the greatest number of dogs and their people regardless of individual training backgrounds, skill sets, handler timing, and/or physical abilities. The priority was to develop a program that was dog-focused and dog driven eliminating the need in the foundational phases of training for extensive handler involvement. By doing this a space was created where individual dogs could build problem-solving skills, explore their natural and intrinsic skill sets, and develop frustration tolerance in addition to emotional stability and behavioral resilience. We will look at the variety of ways this idea of “dog driven” not only builds from scratch a solid “competition nose work” dog but has positive behavioral effects on dogs that might otherwise never reach their potential. This webinar will cover the origins of nose work as seen today for sport and enrichment along with how it can be utilized for non-sport (competition) purposes, including but not limited to enrichment for homebound and confined dogs, senior dogs, and as an emotional and behavioral activity used to enhance other work being done to improve a dog’s quality of life. https://k9nosework.com These webinars are suitable for dog sports teams, veterinary professionals, animal trainers, animal behaviorists, shelter and rescue staff and volunteers, and anyone with an interest in evidence-based behavior intervention.
