Now that your dog has caught on to the game, you can push the envelope even further! Focus will be on exterior and vehicle searches which will be weather dependent. You will learn how the environment (temperature, humidity, wind, sun) affects the odours. If the weather is very inclement more challenging interior searches will be taught.
This awesome new sport was inspired by the training of scent detection canines for the police and military. It is open to all dogs: Purebred and mixed-breeds.
This course is designed to prepare your dog for Started Level SDDA trials. Only one dog-handler team works at one time. Dogs must be comfortable being crated or staying alone on a mat while not searching or while setting up your searches. They may also be crated in your car depending on the search location and weather.
