Nosework is a fun, fast growing sport where dogs search for essential oil scent similar to drug or bomb detection dogs. The most amazing thing about this sport is how confident dogs become after learning and doing nosework! It's a sport for ALL dogs and super ideal for dogs needing more confidence, injured dogs, senior dogs and young dogs.
