Scent Detection

Scent Detection Group Class via Zoom


Your dog’s most prized sense is their sense of smell and scent detection will put their sniffer to the ultimate test. Dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes can be successful when it comes to searching and detecting a scent. Blind and deaf dogs can do scent work, and it is also great for reactive dogs as it helps build focus and confidence.  Our scent detection training program covers everything you need to prepare to compete (if that is your goal) or just have fun with your dog doing searches in/out of your home.


  • 5-1 hour recorded remote training sessions via Zoom that covers everything from preparing the scent, committing to the scent, container, interior, exterior and vehicle searches.
  • Access to our online Scent Detection course which includes training videos for each week
  • Access to a private Facebook group where you access session recordings, get feedback to your questions, and submit training videos between sessions.
