Her standard poodle Desi crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on 11-2-18. He was retired and had earned the Champion Tracker and NACSW™ Elite 2 title. Moni crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on 7-3-21.

K9 Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to find a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced, and competition skills are taught.
