    Benefits of Scent Detection: 

    • can be done anywhere
    • mental stimulation
    • great for confidence
    • dogs get to use their natural abilities


    Instructor Bio: Karin Apfel
    Karin has been training and competing with dogs for over 25 years in Rally-O, flyball and agility. Her passion for the past few years has been detection work, particularly teaching sporting detection for competition. After discovering the value of scent work to build confidence in nervous or reactive dogs and the true enjoyment all dogs get from using their primary sense to play games, she worked with several law enforcement and private detection professionals and, in 2012, started the Sporting Detection Dogs Association in partnership with several other trainers. She is currently the president of the SDDA and teaches weekly classes in detection in Newmarket.

What People Are Saying About Us

It's not just dogs that love K9 Central Pet Resort and Spa - dog owners like you love it too!
  • I am writing to you to let you know how much I am enjoying training at K9. The classes are fun and lively, entertaining and provide the socialization that dogs and dog owners need to add to a balanced life.Your facility has so much to offer the dog owner from training to grooming to daycare and the cost is really reasonable in comparison to the services offered and the peace of mind. Cathy and Boomer
  • I have had my dogs groomed often (especially after playing there for a week or more) at K9 Central. I am amazed at how young and beautiful they look when they come home. Jessica and the other groomers are obviously well trained and very dedicated to the well-being of dogs. Pat Gagliardi
  • We just got a new rescue dog named Lucy and she LOVES going to K9 Central. It’s built up her confidence and social skills. The staff are so caring, knowledgeable and nice, they know our dogs by name and I couldn’t be more thankful to have you guys. Toni Mullin
