Why play nose games with your dog?

Your dog lives in a world rich with scents -- and he has the astonishing olfactory powers to understand that world. For many dogs, using their noses is pure joy. You've probably noticed that out on walks or any time you take your dog somewhere new. Teaching scent games takes things to a whole new level. Your dog learns to be an "educated nose", working with you in ways that help build confidence, bring joy to your relationship, and provide meaningful enrichment for your dog's mind.

  • Easy & fun for dogs of any age

  • No need for specialized equipment or classes

  • Stimulates your dog's brain in healthy ways

  • Builds confidence - who doesn't like being a genius?

  • Excellent for older dogs or those with physical limitations

  • Great way to provide a mental workout that is suitable even for pups

Great as indoor or outdoor game

Connie Carroll

I found some of these games very helpful during our recent heat wave when the dogs could not play outside. They enjoyed them very much and it kept their minds busy and engaged.
