What is Scentwork training?
Scentwork is when a dog uses its superior sense of smell to identify and locate a scent which it has been trained to detect.
Using the sense of smell is a natural behaviour for a dog and essential in hunting and finding prey. This behaviour has been put to many uses, for example in police work, search and rescue, and hunting. As a dog sport, Scentwork mimics detection style nosework as practiced by customs and excise, explosives detection, search and rescue and medical detection dogs.Book a session
