Discover Canine

Scent Work

Also known as nosework, scent work is an excellent outlet for just about any dog.

Handlers learn how to train their dog to find a specific odour and alert them to it. Because dogs are worked one at a time scent work is suitable for dogs that are reactive to other dogs.

Scent work is a great way to provide enrichment for your dog because it provides mental stimulation and allows them to use their powerful sense of smell.

Introduction to Scent Work courses are held regularly in Traralgon and cover both theory and practical components.

Whether you want to go on and compete in scent work or would just like to learn how to play this incredibly fun game with your dog this course gives you a fantastic start – using the same techniques the professionals use to train working detection dogs.

Many Discover Canine students have gone on to gain titles in ANKC Scent Work trials. As a Scent Work judge I am well placed to prepare teams for trial, helping them understand what to expect and how to avoid common mistakes.

Courses can also be held in different locations and tailored to the individual group. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Classes for teams already proficient in finding odour are held every week.
