POCONO NOSEWORK is owned and operated by Carol Noriega, CNWI. It was developed to bring the sport and spirit of K-9 Nose Work® to the Pocono Mountain region through hosting educational seminars and trials, and nose work classes in real life “on location” settings. We encourage Nose Work enthusiasts to get out and have FUN with their dogs.
Carol proudly shares her home with a Redbone Coonhound, Copper, and a Doberman, Puma. Both dogs were rescued as adults and have earned a Canine Good Citizenship title.
Carol began Nose Work training in 2011 with her dog, Copper. This team has successfully titled NW1, NW2, NW3 Elite, ELT1, ELT2, ELT3 and ELT CHAMPION!
Copper has received overall pronounced designations at NW1, NW2, NW3 and is currently competing at the Summit level.
Team Copper competed in the 2017 NACSW National Invitationals and ranked #10 in the country: http://nacsw.net/overall-results.
The newest member of my family is an adult Doberman rescued off the streets of Taiwan.
Puma is enjoying his journey with K-9 Nose Work and especially loves BOXES!
Puma has successfully titled NW1, NW2, NW3 Elite,
ELT CH and is a Harry Award recipient.
