Scent work (or Nose work) is a relatively new discipline in NZ. DogsNZ are now running Scent Work trials as do SSANZ (Scent Sport Association NZ). Scent work involves dogs locating an odour in a variety of environments, communicating the location to their handler, who then informs the judge where they think the odour is located. So it is very much a team exercise where the dog and the handler work together to understand each other. It is a fun sport to try even if you are not planning to compete. A great benefit of this sport is that it is suitable for dogs of any age. You will build a strong bond with your dog too, and we can guarantee that your pooch will love it!
