An Expert’s Opinion on K9 Nose Work

Recently Julie Eskoff, CPDT-KA, CNWI wrote an article on how K9 Nose Work increases a dog’s confidence, and how it can be used to help them get over environmental fears or reactivity.

“[The] program was built to support the dog’s natural state of mind while hunting, giving the dog a setting to use its natural instincts.  … All dogs have this skill and one third of their brain is dedicated to olfactory reception.  It’s a beautiful moment when humans have to be quiet and observe while the dog leads the hunt. K9 Nose Work® is not just about going to trial and winning in the latest sport sweeping the U.S.  K9 Nose Work® is about mental and emotional fitness for your dog regardless if they are blind, deaf, shy, retired from the show ring, reactive, geriatric, have only three legs, or wheels for legs.”
