Scent Detection involves teaching dogs to search for and alert on target odours. Scent detection is reactive dog friendly, and is fantastic low impact activity that is great mental exercise. 

Please note that dog-dog interaction is never allowed at any of our Scent Detection events, so it’s always safe to play.

Only one dog at a time will be in the search area.

Please also note the classes will run for 60 minutes with 4 people at $265

In this 6 week program, we will be going over the rules of each level of CWAGS scent detection and getting you prepared to trial. The odours we will be using are Birch, Anise, Cypress and Clove. You will be running in search areas outlined by CWAGS. 

 

You and your dog will have an opportunity to practice in every level CWAGS has to offer. From Ranger where your dog works at a distance, to searching in an area with one to four hides, but the total of hides is unknown to the handlers. This is also a great time to polish the skills you and your dogs have learned and to gain more confidence in a trial setting.
