Scent work is a new and popular game for handlers to play with their dogs. This game allows the dog to use one of its strongest senses, the olfactory sense, to identify things hidden in the environment. Sniffing has been shown to have a positive calming effect on canines. Dogs LOVE to sniff! Engage your dogs natural instinct and drive to smell their environment into Scent work Games.
