Dogs are experts at using their noses! Scent work is one of the fastest growing dog sports in America It allows a dog to do the thing they love to do most - SNIFF!
The scent work sport mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found.
Different organizations have different rules
and requirements, but most are basically the same, in that they encourage a dog to search for certain scents, and to "alert," or notify, their handler.
All dogs can good at nose work - any breed, any age, even with no prior training experience, can learn this sport. It is great for older dogs and/or handlers who can no longer participate in more active activities.
