K-9 Nose Work

The current dates listed for Nose Work classes are the last set being offered by Waggin' Tails Junction. If you are interested in taking Nose Work classes in the future, please contact the instructor, Anke King, directly. Phone: 703-314-5484, Email:


Canine Nose Work is a class for ALL DOGS.  Any breed that wants to have fun can participate.  Older dogs, shy dogs, and reactive dogs are welcome to come to class to “use their nose”.  In these classes your dog can use their “sniffing” instinct, gain confidence, and build a positive outlet for energy.  These classes are fun and positive for you and your dog.  No previous training experience is needed to get started in Nosework.  Everyone starts with Nosework 1, moving onto NW2, next is NW3, and then the Introduction for Travel Classes.  After satisfactory completion of those classes you can move onto travel classes with Anke.


Anke King, CNWI™ has a unique multifaceted approach to working and living with dogs and over 30 years of experience training dogs in conformation, obedience, herding, agility, protection and now K9 Nose Work®.  Over the years, Anke and her dogs  have gained respect at both national and international levels.  She has competed at national invitational agility trials and the World Championship in Slovenia.  Since 2006, Anke has managed the daycare program at Waggin' Tails Junction. In addition Anke has earned the distinction of CNWI (Certified Nose Work Instructor) with the NACSW (National Association of Canine Scent Work).
