Scentwork is when a dog uses its sense of smell to identify and locate a scent which it has been trained to detect.
Dogs have a highly sensitive nose, vastly superior to our own. Scentwork is a natural behaviour for a dog and essential in hunting and finding prey. As man’s best friend, 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.
Scentwork UK has been set up to promote and develop scentwork as a dog sport and training activity throughout the country.
It is open to anyone whether you are a pet dog trainer or a more advanced dog trainer.
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. It will improve the relationship between you and your dog and is a great confidence builder especially for the shy dog. You can participate whether it is just for fun, or go on - Once you begin its a fantastic journey!
