Pictures are coming soon!
K9 Nose Work®; the exciting new detection-style sport designed to develop a dog’s natural scenting abilities. This scenting sport is fascinating as it uses a dog’s desire to hunt and their love of toys, food, and exercise. It’s a great way for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy. To find more information about Nosework, check www.nacsw.net and www.k9nosework.com
