What is Scent Work?
Scent Work is the sport application of Canine Scent Detection. Canines have been used for years for their sniffing power for the detection of narcotics and bombs and more recently termites and even cancer.
Scent Work uses essential oils which are legal and easy to obtain for the general public. It is an amazing activity to do with your dog, whether for fun or for sport. It can be done inside or outside making it a great way to exercise your dog in winter or rainy days. The act of searching for a scent uses your dog’s brain and is a different type of exercise and often will tire out a dog.
Canine Coaching teaches under Sporting Detection Dogs Association (SDDA) guidelines.
Scents used are Wintergreen, Pine and Thyme.
