Nose Work & Scent Work

The Nose Knows!



 With over a decade of K9 narcotics and explosive detection handling and training experience; both overseas and stateside, Jon is highly sought after for his renowned expertise in the popular and expanding sports of K9 Nose Work and AKC Scent Work - The civilian detection sports that mimics the task of working detection dogs, requiring dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found. Jon’s teaching approach is a mesh of NACSW and his own style. Jon’s emphasis is on teaching the dog to search for “odor”, scanning the environment, rather than having the dog be solely reliant on searching the “objects” in the environment for the odor.  In addition to his teachings, Jon travels the country presenting seminars and judging assignments.
