SCENT WORK IS A GAME FOR EVERY DOG!

WHAT DO THE DOGS SEARCH FOR?

In Scent Work, dogs start off hunting for food and then graduate to searching for novel target odors such as essential oils. These may include Birch, Anise, Clove, Cypress, Wintergreen, Myrrh and more.

WHERE DO THE DOGS SEARCH?

Searches can be anywhere! A room in your house. Your yard. Your car. At a park. The game is what you make it. In formal competition, there are a few standard recognized search elements: Containers, Interiors, Exteriors and Vehicles.
