Our Nosey Ones

Spinoni have big noses, yes?! This is useful in hunting, tracking, and search and rescue, of course, but they can also sniffing out stuff, and things, just for the fun of it. Scent work, a.k.a. nose work, is an up-and-coming sport that now has AKC titles available.

Even if you’re not interested in titles, you and your dog can have fun, expand on your teamwork, and exercise both brain and body. Best of all, it’s an organized sport for dogs with a very low barrier to entry — a willingness to train along with a few easy-to-find equipment items and you can be off and running, er, sniffing.
