Scentwork is basically teaching a dog to track a specific scent and find it in various scenarios, – think customs dogs or police dogs tracking a burglar. All dogs are able to do it as all dogs have noses and their natural instinct is to sniff. Its a great brain workout, its solving a puzzle and burns off lots of mental energy, which walking and exercise alone doesn’t achieve. Its also lots of fun.
Level 1 is a search for the scent of cloves, which consists of a luggage, vehicle, outdoor and table and chairs search. There are up to 8 levels nationally and competitions and trails held throughout the country – your dog could be gold medal winner even at level 1.
