Schedules: Scent Classes

* Classes will be postponed on any stat holidays or the weekends of a stat holiday, and resume the following week.


Scent Detection - Level 1


Scent Detection is one of the fastest growing dog sports. It is well suited for dogs of all ages, breeds and temperaments. Although it is a group class, the work you do with your dog will be done individually. It develops focus and confidence and is an amazing way to enhance the dog/handler bond. Dogs love to use their nose, and this course will give them an opportunity to really show us what they are capable of!

In this class your dog will learn how to recognize the Wintergreen scent. Week 6 will be your Designated Odor Test at which time your dog will search 12 containers and alert you to the odour.

Classes are held each week on the same day and time that you sign up for. Each class is 45 minutes in length. Classes are not held on weekends with statutory holidays but will resume the following week.

Prerequisite: Minimum age 6 months. This class is suited to all temperaments of dogs. However dogs that are overly fixated on other dogs or are a distraction in class, will not be allowed.

Course Fee: $225.00 (+ taxes)     Length: 6 weeks

Scent Detection - Level 2


During Scent Detection level 2, we will work on developing and refining leash handling, effective searching, and understanding and further developing your dog's indication. In this class your dog will learn how to recognize a new scent - Pine.

We will continue to work on container searches and we will move on to interior searches. You will also learn the principles of vehicle and exterior searches, skills that you can take home and practice as you prepare to trial in the sport or just have fun with your dog.

Classes are held each week on the same day and time that you sign up for. Each class is 45 minutes in length. Classes are not held on weekends with statutory holidays but will resume the following week.

Prerequisite: You must have taken Scent Detection Level 1 (or equivalent group class elsewhere). However you are not required to pass the DOT test in Level 1, in order to attend Level 2.

Course Fee: $225.00 (+ taxes)     Length: 6 weeks
