Curious about scent work? Wondering what it takes to get you and your dog started?

This is an opportunity to try out scent work with your dog and to find out about the different volunteer positions.

We are offering two sessions consisting of two classes each to learn with your dog, and two additional chances to watch, learn and practice various volunteer positions while more experience dogs practice.

You are welcome to take either session or both. Since dogs and handlers progress at different rates we will have several assistants to help as you progress.

Each handler in class will get scent work vessels and q-tips with Birch odor for practicing.

There will be two Practice matches for more advanced dogs-those at novice and advanced levels where you can practice several volunteer positions so you will be comfortable at the trials.

Practice matches will be $10/dog for two searches and free for volunteers not running a dog. Practice will be open to all levels and will start at 1:00 and times for each level will be sent out the week before.


Attention!! If you don’t have a dog you wish to start in scent work, or is not quite old enough or already doing scent work but wondering how you might help ICCKC by volunteering at a trial and why you might want to do that?


We will also be training the different jobs at the practice matches. Watching dogs search is fascinating, and as a volunteer you get a front row seat in many of the positions. This is a fun opportunity to give back to your club.
