The Sport of Scent Detection is the fun and competitive version of scent detection such as for narcotics, bed bugs or explosives designed for pet dogs. We use legal scents that are easily purchased and stored by the average person. The dog must locate a hidden target scent within an area and alert the handler to its location. It is a true partnership sport in which both partners must rely on one another. Whether practised for sport or for fun, sport detection is suited to all types of dogs and handlers. All breeds, ages, sizes and ability of dogs are welcome. Classes and trials are run so that each search is done by one dog and handler team alone, allowing dogs with space issues to focus and learn. Each dog works individually and without social stressors allowing them to channel their energy on the task. No obedience is needed as a prerequisite and boisterous behaviours such as barking and pulling can be part of the game. Unruliness can be curbed by using the dog's natural desire to hunt, to develop focus and self-control. This activity also promotes confidence and provides mental stimulation, ideal for shy, elderly or disabled dogs.

For this seminar you will be required to bring a chair, a dog, a crate, your dog's favourite food and toy, a 6ft leash, a bait bag, and a harness ie Julius K9 harness.
