The Nose Knows! Canine Nosework with Michele Ellertson CNWI
Show Notes

Dogs navigate their environment through their amazing sense of smell. So why not utilize this natural gift through practicing nose and scent work with your canine companion?  It doesn't have to be formal or fancy, although there are classes and competitions aplenty. This relatively new sport (~2007) uses the canine olfactory system to solve problems and instill confidence. Moreover, EVERY dog can - and should - do this because it's what they are born to do! And when it comes to enrichment and gentle movement, this is an activity that senior dogs, physically disabled dogs, and blind or deaf dogs can master! Listen to Michele share what nosework is, how its trained, and its myriad of benefits.
