K9 NOSE  Courses

We offer our modules and correspondence hands-on as well as online. The online version of our modules are for those who wish to learn the theory & practice without traveling away from home, yet are dedicated to learning the art and craft of (scent) dog training. 

Below is an overview of our  modules related to (Scent) Dog Training that we currently give.
