K9 Nose Work® Classes Growing in Popularity!

K9 Nose Work® was created about five years ago in Los Angeles, California. The first trial was held in 2009. There are now over 2000 members of the National Association of Scent Work™ and trials are being organized across the country.

Sue McKinney is the only Certified Nose Work Instructor in North Carolina. She has recently earned her Nose Work 1 title with her dog, Smudge, at Maryland’s first K9 Nose Work trial on June 3, 2012.

Watch Sue and Smudge’s TV interview! Smudge was the “Dog in White” for Alabama’s first K9 Nose Work trial. This means she ran each element before the competitors to be sure it would run the way the Certifying Official (who sets the hides) thought it would. She was fabulous!
