K9 Nose Work®


Nose Work is a great way to let your dog be a dog and excel in an activity that s/he is naturally good at (sniffing, exploring and hunting).  At the same time you will learn more about your companion's behavior and body language and admire his scenting skills. 

You and your dog will build a strong relationship based on mutual trust and communication, by enjoying a fun and "no pressure" activity together.

Pet Manners

Our Pet Manners program is based on scientifically proven "positive reinforcement (reward based)" training.

These sessions address appropriate pet manners such as sit, down, come, loose-leash walking, and leave it.

In addition, we address unwanted "nuisance" behaviors such as jumping on people, counter-surfing, play-biting, and housetraining.

One-On-One Support

Individual K9 Nose Work® and Pet Manners training sessions as well as behavior modification consultations are customized to fit your needs and schedule.

You and your dog will get one-on-one attention, guidance, support and practice. No session minimum required.

Every Nosework  class with her is fun yet challenging. The bond I have with Glover would not be as close if it were not for Silke and Nosework. -- Brian Marino and Glover, Stillwater, PA
