Nosework in Chicago suburbs?
 
I've scoured the interwebs looking for nosework classes in the DuPage County area and have found a few, but I don't personally know anyone who has done nosework with their dog... I think Ralphie would thoroughly enjoy this!

Can the lovely forum recommend any place in the western Chicago suburbs?

We've only been to puppy kindergarten here, but Nosework is on their class schedule. It's in South Elgin…north St. Charles, really. I hope to take our girl sometime! Best of luck and keep us posted :)

I live in the northern suburbs and found a bunch of places.. When I get home I can check I think some were closer to the city.

Yeah kind of. Scent recognition is the first step... One of the class descriptions I read indicated you could use the training to have your dog find things you've lost in your house like keys or cell phones, so a lightbulb instantly went off in my head! :p Plus, when Ralphie is not being made to heel on walks, he will sniff out and follow scents for blocks.

Oh, I see. Thanks for the description!!!

I have a friend in Chicago. I know she is training in scent work (not sure if they do nose work). I just emailed her to find out the name of the place.

If you look under MI you will see Carolyn at the top. She is my instructor but she's actually from Chicago and is always driving back there for seminars, training, and trials. If you email her I'm sure she could tell you of clubs/trainers near Chicago.
