Scent Work, what is it?

Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent (e.g., explosives or narcotics) 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’s fun, engaging, and that builds and strengthens a foundation of trust between the handler and dog.

Scent Work Is Extremely Versatile

Basic scent work games are extremely versatile which makes it one of the first activities I’d recommend teaching your dog. It can be done in any environment. You don’t need to rush out to the shops and buy loads fancy equipment – and it can be played pretty much anywhere; indoors or out and in any weather conditions
