What is Nose Work?

Nosework training harness’s the power of your dogs best sense,his nose. Dogs have 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in ours and the part of a dog's brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is, proportionally speaking, 40 times greater than ours. Dogs' noses also function quite differently than our own.
Teach your dog to find the target scents of cloves,gun oil and truffle oil for fun or working towards a Scentwork UK trial.

What is Dog Agility?

(taken from Wikipedia)

Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off-leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Consequently the handler's controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring exceptional training of the animal and coordination of the handler.

In its simplest form, an agility course consists of a set of standard obstacles laid out by a judge in a design of his or her own choosing in an area of a specified size. The surface may be of grass, Astro Turf, rubber, or special matting. Depending on the type of competition, the obstacles may be marked with numbers indicating the order in which they must be completed.

Courses are complicated enough that a dog could not complete them correctly without human direction. In competition, the handler must assess the course, decide on handling strategies, and direct the dog through the course, with precision and speed equally important. Many strategies exist to compensate for the inherent difference in human and dog speeds and the strengths and weaknesses of the various dogs and handlers.

All breeds and sizes of dogs can compete in competitions.

There many organisations governing Agility shows in the UK for example Kennel Club, BAA and UKA.
