Scent work is a great activity to do with your dog whether you are interested in competing or not. It’s a challenging activity that gives your dog the opportunity to use their noses while having fun, it builds confidence, and strengthens the bond between owner and dog.
You will learn the beginning stages of teaching your dog to find odor, learn how odor works, handling techniques, and practice finding odor with your dog. You will also start to learn how to read your dog when they are on odor and when they aren’t. You will also begin the stages of teaching and working with your dog’s alert cue.
