Kathryn Woods, CNWI, Scent Work Instructor
Kathryn has a passion for nose work and teaching. She has a master’s degree in both social work (MSW) and special education (M.Ed.). Her background in psychology and education has prepared her well for sharing her knowledge and love of nose work/scent work. She is a certified nose work instructor (CNWI) with the National Association of Canine Scent Work. She has been teaching scent work for over 5 years.
Kathryn became personally involved in nose work in 2014 with the adoption of her Weimaraner, Grace. Since then, nose work has had a positive impact on their lives. Grace has experienced both a decrease in anxiety and an increase in confidence. But most of all, it has deepened their bond. Kathryn also enjoys working and playing with her German Short-haired Pointer, Greta. She continues to compete in various scent work trials and competitions. Both dogs have earned several titles and placements in the sport of nose work.
