This webinar will explore the therapy side of nose work and various ways trainers can work it into their behavioural modification programs and will touch on the beginnings of the sport of nose work in Australia.

  • learn the different approaches to teaching nose work to dogs;
  • learn the reason for the differences;

About The Presenter

Peta has been training animals professionally for 25 years. Her love of nose work started 4 years ago when she began to understand and witness the therapeutic benefits of the activity for dogs. 

"Watching dogs work odour is one of the most wonderful experiences of my career. There is no other activity that will allow you so fully into their world" , she says.

Peta is currently an Associate Instructor with the National Association of Canine Scent Work and as always continues to research and study the activity of nose work as widely as possible to ensure every point of view is heard and understood.
