Nose Work Games

Put your dog's nose to the test in a fun, but competitive nosework game!

What's included in a Nosework Game? 

Each nosework game is held at our dedicated Training & Behaviour Centre 

Test out the skills you have learnt on the Beginners Scent Work Course or the Scent Detection for Reactive Dogs Course (dogs will compete individually) or have reached a point where they work to odour (whether trained elsewhere or self-taught)


Each Nosework Game has a theme and tea & cake is provided


There will be a qualified trainer leading the class, with a maximum of 8 dogs per session

The dog who detects all of the scents in the quickest time wins! 


Check out our T&Cs here for our cancellation policy

What else do I need to know?

  • Cost is £25 per competition, which lasts for 2.5 hours and comprises of 3 individual games

  • APDS is an approved venue for Nosework Games Competitions and Head Trainer, Jen Smith, is an approved Nosework Games Competition Instructor

  • These competitions are designed to test dog and handler team on a variety of scent work skills, in a fun way and include tasks such as find the hidden treasure, adopt a position, distance, go to source and more! 

  • Please bear in mind that these games are held in a dog training centre so there will be some residual dog odour
