Made for dogs. Fun for people.
In-person, limited attendance classes available. Scroll down to find nosework classes in Victoria BC.
Why do Nosework? Nosework is:
- A perfect mental stimulation activity – that will tire even the most energetic dog
- A confidence builder for shy and fearful dogs
- A safe outlet for reactive dogs
- Totally natural and…
- Unbelievably fun (for dogs and people)
The wonderful thing about nosework is that really almost any dog can do it. I would recommend it to anyone but, it is really a terrific confidence builder for dogs, and so much fun for people.
