Scent Work & Tracking
Performance Sports & Companion Sports
Scent Work and Tracking simulates the work of detection dogs. Dogs are trained to detect certain scents in or on different objects and alert the handler when the dog finds the scent. Several different objects are used in different levels. The different objects may be cardboard boxes, toys, household items, and/or even cars. Trials can be done inside or outside depending on the course. Scent work, a Performance Sport, develops your dog's natural ability to use his/her nose to identify what's in its world.
Tracking, a Companion Sport, is similar to Sent Work in that the dog has to use his natural scent ability to follow a path to find article(s) dropped along the way.
