"What is Scent Work?!"
A FUN ACTIVITY ALL DOGS SHOULD PLAY
Tap into your dog's amazing sense of smell and build their confidence and problem-solving skills as they work to find hidden odors.
COMPETE AT TRIAL OR PLAY AT HOME
Join the thousands of dog and handler teams worldwide competing at trials or relax and play the game for fun in the comfort of your own home.
SCENT WORK IS A GAME FOR EVERY DOG!
"What do the dogs search for?"
In Scent Work, dogs start off hunting for food or toys and then graduate to searching for novel target odors such as essential oils.
These novel target odors 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 Scent Work competition trials, there are a few standard recognized search elements: Containers, Interiors, Exteriors and Vehicles.
SOUNDS FUN, RIGHT?
