About Us

Ron Gaunt, Amy Herot and Jill-Marie O'Brien founded and developed the activity and sport of K9 Nose Work to bring fun scent work to the greatest number of dogs and their people. 

K9 Nose Work blends the foundational skills used in K9 detection with a unique teaching style that promotes individuality and relationship building between dogs and their people, providing a lifetime of rewarding experiences.

Beginning in Southern California in 2006, K9 Nose Work classes, workshops, and competitions are now enjoyed from coast to coast, making a difference in the lives of thousands of dogs and their people.


"Trust your Dog"
