Ideal Sport For The Retired Flyball Dog

K9 Nose Work® is now at Bow Wowz Agility in Colorado Springs.

The ideal sport for the retired flyball dog. No more leaving your long term companion home because flyball may have become too active a sport for your dog.

K9 Nose Work® is the newest and fastest growing sport for dogs. Based on training implemented for drug scenting dogs, this sport is aimed at the family dog.
K9 Nose Work® is open to any size, shape or age of dog.

K9 Nose Work® helps to build confidence in a shy or timid dog.

This sport will enhance your relationship with your dog, helping the handler learn to read the subtle signal a dog may use to announce she has found the prize.

For all classes you must have a crate or alternate safe way to confine your dog. I have met human students that bring their spouse to sit with their dog, while the dog waits to learn. Each dog works alone, this allows this sport to be open to dogs that may be fearful, timid, handicapped or reactive.

You must bring your dogs favorite reward. If your dog prefers food over a ball or tug, bring food. If you place chicken and a toy side by side and your dog chooses the toy bring the toy. The dog chooses the reward.

All dogs work on leash for the first class. You may want your dog to work in a harness.

Obedience is not allowed in class. No heeling, stays, waits, uh-uh’s, No’s, Stop’s. Dogs are not corrected.

The dog alway’s wins.
