Scent Work – Boxes

Misty Pines Pet Company 2523 Wexford Bayne Rd, Sewickley

Every dog is equipped with an amazing tool: their nose! Olfaction, the act or process of smelling, is a dog’s primary special sense. Dogs have more than 220 million olfactory receptors in their nose, while humans have only 5 million! Teaching dogs to use their nose to identify a target odor offers many benefits. Medical tests have even shown that specially trained dogs are capable of using the dog’s sense of smell to detect certain types of tumors in humans. Scent Work is a highly recommended working game for families to learn to work their family pets.

Not many family dogs will be used for bomb detection, competition or tracking work, but every family dog can learn to play Hide N Seek and find objects hidden around the house. These games can be used to help provide mental stimulation for your dog and provide a job to keep him active. Scent Working is an activity that all dogs enjoy and all dogs can do.

Beginners and all other skill levels are welcome.

Tricks are behaviors that are outside of our typical curriculum and often involve multiple steps per behavior.

Recommendations: Bring a hungry dog, leash and collar, bait bag and yummy treats. If you do not have a treat bag, they are sold at Misty Pines. You may purchase one before class.
