Puppy Sniffing Games Banner WIX.jpg
Puppy Scent Work

Your puppy has an amazing sense of smell. They also seem to have an endless supply of energy! Why not give them a game they can play that will tap into that nose of theirs, give them a mental and physical outlet and help build their confidence?! Scent Work will help you achieve all of this and more!

Course Details

Scent Work is the civilian version of what police and military dogs do out in the field. While we will not be finding bad guys, bombs or drugs, we will be working to help our puppies use their amazing sense of smell of work out various odor puzzles.


In this 6-week course, we will have your puppy find food, otherwise known as primary, in a variety of container and interior searches. 


Similiar to our Introduction to Scent Work course offered through Scent Work University, this course will break down the exercises even further, introducing play breaks to ensure your puppy doesn't get overwhelmed and walk you through how to ensure your puppy doesn't make any unintended associations during their fear periods.
