A fun event open to all dogs to enjoy the challenge of locating a scent and communicating with their handler that the scent has been located. The trial is done in a variety of environments allowing a dog to use their strongest natural sense. Dogs will be divided into height divisions within the classes based on the height indicated on the entry form. Titles are awarded upon the dog acquiring the required number of qualifying scores within the class entered.
All interested CKC recognized clubs may apply to hold Scent Detection events provided they have the experience, equipment and location to hold a safe event. Scent Detection events either can be a stand-alone event or may be held in conjunction with other CKC events. A minimum of one (1) Sanction match must be held prior to holding a Scent Detection Trial.
