The new sport is known as K9 Nose Work. This sport focus on allowing and helping the dog and the handler/owner to have fun. It is the most fun sport I have experienced, both as an owner and as a handler as well as an instructor. Try it, your dog will thank you.
The National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW™) is dedicated to making high quality instructors available to students of the activity and sport of K9 Nose Work® through its Certified Nose Work Instructor Program.
In C-WAGS you will find the most relaxed atmosphere of nose work. The odors are also Birch, Anise, Clove and Cypress but there are no distinct elements in this organization. It is a great venue to get your feet wet and test what you have learned.
Roger is a CNWI (Certified Nose Work Instructor), and AKC Scent Work Judge and an UKC Nosework Judge.
All training will employ the methodologies established by NACSW.
The focus on all of our Nose Work classes will be for the dog and owner/handler to have fun. Intro, as well as the following classes, are well suited for all dogs with the exception of human aggressive dogs.
This class builds upon the foundation skills learned in Level 1 and focuses on skill building while searching for a particular odor. We teach to dogs to search for the odor and to develop odor obedience.
This class is sometimes referred to as the “Master Class”. It is designed for experienced dog and handler teams. The search areas will become larger and with more distractions and distractors.
This class is designed for students that may want to work on a specific issue or element. Perfect for anyone at any level that may want to work without other dogs present.
