Scentwork

Scentwork is a recreational activity dog owners can enjoy with their canine companions. It encourages your dog's natural drive to hunt, coupled with their special talent for picking up scents and finding their source. Interior searches, exterior searches, container searches, and vehicle searches are some of the places that the scents will be detected by the dogs. Teams will learn foundations for handling, odor recognition and dog behavior.
