Want someone to tell you what to practice, and get personalized feedback?

This ongoing course features monthly topics (so you don't have to think of what to practice), but enough flexibility that it can be tailored to where you are in your specific scent work journey.

Film your practice of the monthly topic and submit a video (up to 3 minutes) once a week for analysis and feedback.

It's time to kick start your Scent Work training and get out of that funk! You can do just that with this ongoing course focused on helping you and your dog.

Every month you are part of the program, you will focus on a new skill. Here is a brief glimpse of what you will delve into:

  • MONTH ONE: Going on the Road

  • MONTH TWO: Start Lines and Thresholds

  • MONTH THREE: Creative Containers

  • MONTH FOUR: Confidence

  • MONTH FIVE: Vehicles

  • MONTH SIX: Rewarding

  • MONTH SEVEN: Exteriors

  • ...and much more!

NOTE: All enrollees will start at Month One and work their way through the program. The longer you are enrolled, the more material you get to work on!


Dog must be familiar hunting for at least one novel odor (Birch, Anise and/or Clove).
