Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found, but the dogs don’t know that. For them, it’s a game of hide and seek: You hide the object, and they seek it out with their nose. Fittingly, the theme of this challenge generously sponsored by Kathleen Dahmer is “Hide and Seek.”
The challenge: Your task is to creatively interpret the challenge theme bearing in mind how it is that dogs find anything and everything.
The prize: A $50 gift certificate to Cherrybrook Show Dog, Grooming & Pet Supplies.
