K9 Nose Work is Coming!

If you aren't yet familiar with the sport of K9 Nose Work, it's an up-and-coming sport that you should look into. Your dog basically learns to sniff out a specific scent, and to locate that scent in four different areas.

A line of boxes is arranged, typically in two rows, within a room. Your dog works his way through the room, locating the one that contains the scent. For beginning dogs, Birch is the scent used. The other three areas are an indoor room, an outdoor space, and a vehicle search.

Gemini Dogs is currently offering classes through instructor Gail McCarthy. We are also offering a mock trial in January, and we are working with some local trainers to co-host the first Massachusetts trial in May 2011.
