Scent work is a canine sport created to mimic professional scent tasks, such as, drug detection or food detection. The dog and handler work as a team to find a hidden target while ignoring distractors such as food or toys. The three odors used in training are birch, anise, and cloves. After a dog finds the odor, he is rewarded with food or a toy.
A four week introductory scent work class, Scent Imprinting and Indication, is offered when there is interest. It is limited to 8 teams (Dog + Handler).
Workshop classes are open to all teams that have experience with odor recognition and indication and wish to improve handling skills and prepare for competition. Workshops are scheduled for 2 hours/once a month.
Distemper Vaccine and Rabies Vaccine, and highly recommend Bordetella (upper respiratory vaccine).
The introductory course, Scent Imprinting and Recognition, (4 weeks) is $60 for members and $75 for non-members.
Workshops are $10 per session for members and $20 per session for non-members.
