AKC Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs. We will train your dog to locate an odor and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found. Scent Work is a positive, challenging activity that allows dogs the opportunity to use their strongest natural sense in a way that is fun, engaging, and that builds and strengthens a foundation of trust between the handler and dog. ALL dogs of all ages and physical limitations may participate.
Scent Work Classes are held based on availability of trainers.
Prerequisite: Completion of the club's Intermediate class or CGC Title.
