A new sport has emerged over the past few years called K9 Nose Work. This sport uses the power of the canine nose and allows dogs to utilize both their nose and desire to hunt. This sport has reached all different types of dogs of all ages and sizes. It has made basic search-dog skills available to companion dogs. A new sport for dog enthusiasts to learn. For details email

Sport Tracking - For Dogs 

Tracking is a sport whereby a dog follows a human scent trail and locates articles on the scent trail placed by that human. We cannot ‘teach’ a dog to track, they already know how. All dogs have the ability to find and follow scents, some better than others. We concentrate on the dog’s ability to follow the desired scent.  

The tracking classes are offered at Breakheart Reservation, Saugus, MA. 

Hourly Rate:  $100.00 Contact us for scheduling.
