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 10 teams (Dog + Handler).
