Noses at Work
Sheila & Kali
Kali is the first dog I have done any kind of sport with. We were her third home at 1-1/2 yrs old and I think she was perfect right out of the box. She hated agility but scent work is perfect for her border collie/cattle dog brain. She’s 13 now, losing her hearing but just gets better and better at scent work!
LeeAnn & Karma + Moby
Karma is noise sensitive and would shut down during agility and other competitions. Scent Work has changed her life. She can now ignore those scary noises and continue working.
Sandra & Lexie
I began nose work with my German import English Cocker Spaniel girl, Lexie, when she was about 4 years old. Up to that point she had only participated in Barn Hunt and titled in NADAC, ASCA and AKC agility. Unfortunately she had a hip injury which ended our agility. I heard about nose work from another English Cocker friend and found Penny Scott-fox truly serendipitously, just what Lexie needed. Lexie was a little shy but Penny assured me nose work would be perfect. Of course Penny was correct and Lexie blossomed with taking placements in NW1, NW2 and NW3 as well as other nose work events throughout the years. Unfortunately due to herniated disks in her back, Lexie has had 2 back surgeries in 18 months which ended all her fun. She just turned 12 years old so she is enjoying retirement.
