Nosework

How good is your dog’s nose? If you put a teaspoon of sugar into your coffee, you might be able to smell the sugar. Put a teaspoon of sugar in two Olympic-sized pools worth of water and your dog could detect the sugar!

Learn how to alleviate boredom and the often destructive behaviours that come with it by harnessing your dog’s innate talents.

Enjoy an activity that is fun for both you and your dog.  Canine nosework can be done both indoors or outside.  It will provide your dog with mental stimulation, build his confidence, and will calm your dog and build focus. Canine nose work is an excellent activity that you can do indoors with your dog on those cold, or rainy days when you just don’t want to spend much time outside.

 How do dogs “see” with their noses?

TED Talk by Alexandra Horowitz

You may have heard the expression that dogs ‘see with their noses’. But dog’s amazing nasal architecture actually reveals a whole world beyond what we can see. Alexandra Horowitz illustrates how the dog’s nose can smell the past, the future and even things that can’t be seen at all.
