SCENT WORK TRAINING

DESCRIPTION

 In Scent Work, one drop of an odor (examples are birch, anise, clove or cypress) is put on a cotton swab and hidden out of site in a search area.  Search areas can include containers, interiors (inside), exteriors (outdoor), buried and vehicles.  Neither the dog nor the handler knows where the odor is hidden.  Your dog is the star of the show, first by detecting the scent, then communicating to you where the scent is located.  You then let the judge know by saying “Alert”.  Each dog will have their own way to tell you where the scent is located.  Teamwork between you and your dog is essential!  Scent Work is a fun and challenging sport, builds confidence, and strengthens your bond with your dog. It has a low physical impact, so it can be appropriate for a variety of dogs, including senior dogs and dogs with disabilities.    


Intro Class: 

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).

 

Level 2 Class:
A four week scent work class building on scent identification skills.  It is limited to 10  teams (Dog + Handler).

Workshops:

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.


VACCINE REQUIREMENTS

Distemper Vaccine and Rabies Vaccine, and highly recommend Bordetella (upper respiratory vaccine).

FEE

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.
