This class teaches dogs and handlers the basics of scentwork. Teaching the dog how to indicate and find a target scent. Handlers are learnt how to mark and reinforce this behaviour to proof it. Searches are introduced to challenge the dogs to find the target scent with more distractions present. The class is designed as more fun rather than focusing on trialling in scentwork. It will be loosely based on the trial rules and assist those who do wish to trial.
