Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found. Real-life detection dogs are trained to search for a variety of things–drugs, explosives, human remains, currency, other contraband, living humans (such as for Search and Rescue), and much more. Scent Work takes this amazing working relationship and turns it into a fun game that any dog can play.
There are a variety of organizations that sanction trials in our area. The instructor, Joan Klingler, is a judge for the American Kennel Club (AKC) & Canine Work & Games (CWAG).
Come and learn the basics of scent work and let your dog use its nose!
