Scent Work

Dogs have a sense of smell that’s between 10,000 and 100,000 times more acute than ours! The sport of scent work uses your dog’s natural ability to sniff and turns it into a rewarding game. The handler has to rely on the dog’s nose to locate the target odor for success. This sport is based on the work of professional detection dogs such as drug dogs. In AKC Scent Work, dogs search for cotton swabs saturated with the essential oils of Birch, Anise, Clove and Cypress. Teamwork is necessary! When the dog finds the scent, they have to communicate the find to the handler.  

With these skills you can teach your dog to locate deer antlers, morel mushrooms, lost keys or even family members!

No previous obedience is required for class.  

This six week course is held once a week at our training facility. We welcome all breeds and ages six months and older!
