SCENTWORK LEVEL 1
Dogs have a highly sensitive nose, vastly superior to our own. Scentwork is a natural behaviour for a dog and essential in hunting and finding prey. As man’s best friend, this behaviour has been put to many uses – for example in police work, search and rescue, and hunting. As a dog sport, Scentwork has emerged from detection style nosework as practised by customs and excise, explosives detection, search and rescue and medical detection dogs.
As a training activity, scentwork is fun, very rewarding and at the same time mentally tiring for your dog. It will improve the relationship between you and your dog and is a great confidence builder, especially for the shy dog. You can participate whether it is just for fun, or go on and enter trials and gain qualifications.
