Scent Hurdle racing is a fun, exciting sport involving 2 teams of 4 dogs racing head-to-head over 4 hurdles to retrieve a dumbbell which they select via scent discrimination. Scent Hurdle racing is very popular in the Calgary area with tournaments characterized by a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Please note: First timers must purchase a set of dumbbells ($20). If you have a tiny dog (Italian greyhound, Chihuahua, etc) please contact us in advance for extra lightweight options.
