K9 Nose Work Classes

NoseWork Classes

We run a variety of nosework courses and classes, from introductory through to advanced. All of our nosework classes run for approximately 1.25 -1.5 hours and are structured so that one team (dog and handler) searches at a time. Dogs will not come into contact with each other and wherever possible, we aim to ensure they cannot see each other either during the class, enabling nervous or reactive dogs the ability to participate without social pressure or stress. All other dogs will be resting in crates, cars or with visual blocks in between runs.

Where to Start?

To begin your dog’s nosework journey, we suggest starting with our 6 week Introduction to Nosework or our Nosework Taster Class. Upon completion of the introductory course with your dog, the next step is Intermediate Nosework. All of these classes work with primary searches (food or toys). You can find more information on each of the courses and classes offered below.

What's Next?

If you are keen to teach your dog to search for odour, or are interested in competitive nosework, Introduction to Odour course is most suitable. We offer additional courses and classes to follow on with, including Advanced Odour Classes, Mock ORTs, New Odour Courses, Element Masterclasses and more. If your dog has already been training on birch odour, please contact us for assistance to choose the most suitable classes for you.

Class LocationS

Classes are held at Hemmant, Brisbane and Nerang, Gold Coast. Hemmant is our main venue, running all levels of classes. Nerang will run mainly introductory and intermediate courses. Some Casual Odour Classes may be held in other locations in Brisbane and the Gold Coast for novelty and to build competition skills.

We are happy to consider additional locations in Brisbane and Queensland to run our nosework services, please contact us with expressions of interest.
