Fascinating fact: Dogs have a sense of smell that’s between 10,000 and 100,000 times more acute than ours! The sport of Scent Work celebrates the joy of sniffing, and asks a dog to sniff to their heart’s content; turning your dog’s favorite activity into a rewarding game. It is a terrific sport for all kinds of dogs, and is a wonderful way to build confidence in a shy dog.

In so many dog sports the handler is in control but this isn’t true in Scent Work. Neither the dog nor handler knows where the target odor is hidden. The handler has to rely on the dog, and follow the dog’s nose to success. In Scent Work, it is the canine who is the star of the show.

The sport of Scent Work is based on the work of professional detection dogs (such as drug dogs), employed by humans to detect a wide variety of scents and substances. In AKC Scent Work, dogs search for cotton swabs saturated with the essential oils of Birch, Anise, Clove, and Cypress. The cotton swabs are hidden out of sight in a pre-determined search area, and the dog has to find them. Teamwork is necessary: when the dog finds the scent, he has to communicate the find to the handler, who calls it out to the judge.

Fall, 2018 Tracking Test!!

Our TD/TDX will be 9/23/2018 at the Charlemont Reservation. We will be having 4 TDs and 4 TDXs. Our judges will be Ken Barna from Burton, OH and Judi Edwards from Beaverdam, VA.This test will be given in conjunction with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America’s National Specialty so in accordance with the AKC specialty draw rules we will draw Corgis first then fill the test with other breeds (Including All-Americans). I know this will give less room for other breeds but the upside is that this is a fundraiser for our club. There will probably be a chance to get some other breeds in, more likely in the TDX. We are also happy to have anyone come and watch! Just email me.

Many persons complain that the Calendar on is to “cluttered”!  Now, in the forms area (click on forms from the home page menu), at the top of the list is a visual instruction sheet on how to simplify using the calendar, including limiting those classes and events you wish to display, go to the week view, switch months or weeks, etc.

Hope this helps make the calendar a more useful tool!
