Nosework Classes

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.
