Scent Detection (Nosework) 

SCENT DETECTION IS THE HOTTEST & FASTEST GROWING PET DOG SPORT AROUND!

Sporting/scent Detection is something fun for any handler or dog to participate in and is a great confidence builder for dogs that have issues such as shyness, aggression, reactive, or simply lack confidence. Sporting detection can also be a great way for dogs to burn off energy with mental stimulation or a fun winter activity for you and your dog! Sporting Detection includes your dog using his nose to find specific target odors in containers, room searches, exterior building, and vehicle searches. If you want to compete in this exciting new sport or just have some fun with your dog then this is for you! We hope to grow this sport in the Cariboo region!

Intro to Scent Detection

During this course, we will introduce you to Scent Detection and focus on teaching your dog a calm, clear and reliable indication to target odors, a natural essential oil. Your dog will gain commitment with duration while pinpointing the source of the odor. All dogs will learn to work independently and without handler input. We will focus on handling and reading your dog while having your dog search independently while proofing with distractions.
