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 all three levels and is currently competing in the Elite division. 

Team Copper competed in the 2017 NACSW National Invitationals and is currently ranked #10 in the country:

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.


Welcome Puma!

The newest member of my family is an adult Doberman rescued off the streets of Taiwan.

Puma is just beginning his journey in scent work, but certainly seems to enjoy BOXES.

Puma has successfully titled NW1, NW2, NW3 Elite and is a Harry Award recipient.
