Scent work is becoming more and more popular in the dog world. Scentwork is when a dog uses its sense of smell to identify and locate a scent which it has been trained to detect.

Scentwork is a natural behaviour for a dog, 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 practiced by customs and excise, explosives detection, search and rescue and medical detection dogs.

It is suitable for all breeds and ages, puppies and dogs with injuries or disabilities – scentwork is a non-injurious sport.

As a training activity, scentwork is fun, very rewarding and at the same time mentally tiring for your dog, so it is a great way to channel the energy of high energy, busy dogs. It will improve the relationship between you and your dog and is a great confidence builder especially for dogs. You can participate whether it is just for fun, or go on and enter trials.
