Your dog aced the Introduction to Scent Work course and now you are ready to continue on with your sniffing journey. Let's up the ante by having your dog tackle more advanced interior searches and even taking the show on the road!

This means searches in dog-friendly interior spaces, such as a friend's house, the lobby of your groomer or vet, a local pet supply store. Lots of fun searching opportunities abound!

By following the K9 Nose Work® training methodology, not only are we giving your dog a strong foundation so they my be successful at a NACSW™ trial, but they will be successful competing with other Scent Work competition organizations as well!


  • your dog

  • collar (flat or martingale)

  • harness (back-clip) (optional)

  • leash (6'-8')

  • long line (10'-15')

  • treats (high-value and smelly)

  • crate or area dog can wait while you set-up your searches

  • boxes (minimum of 10 boxes of various sizes) (good excuse to shop at Amazon!)

  • plastic lid (from a yogurt or similar container)

  • earthquake putty or GlueDots


The Interiors and Field Trips with Primary course is designed to provide the same exact learning experience we provided to our in-person group dog training classes in a virtual format. Same great quality with more flexibility and convenience!

Here is a quick breakdown of the types of topics that will be covered each week:

  • Upping the Ante of Interior Searches

  • Problem-Solving and Confidence Searches

  • Not Always With Stuff

  • Playing with HVAC and Airflow

  • Elevated and Suspended Hides

  • Taking Your Sniffing On the Road


Have you and your dog completed the Introduction to Scent Work course? Focus on building your dog's ability to hunt successfully in a variety of interior searches as well as field trip locations.

Are you already doing these searches, but noticing problems? Your foundation is everything! If you or your dog are struggling with interior searches, allowing them to hunt for primary and inject joy back into the game may be just what you need!

Do you just want to do something fun with your dog? Scent Work is an excellent excuse to go on short field trips with your dog, allowing them to hunt and explore all while having tons of fun!
