After years of discussions, we’re excited about the opportunity to compete in Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) Scent Detection, starting Jan. 2019.
Small dog owners may be pleasantly surprised to see height divisions with specific guidelines for hide elevation. I appreciate how humans in the search area present an option for distractions in addition to food and toys, since they’re difficult to avoid in field deployments. Unfortunately for clubs, there are a lot of odors, which may include Wintergreen, Pine, Anise, Birch, Clove and/or Cypress.
Here’s an excerpt from the CKC Board Meeting Agenda (Gallery Copy from June 7&8, 2018), with preliminary proposed rules: CKC scent detection info june 8 2018 Agenda Gallery
We’re hopeful this will become a fun new venue for Canadian scent enthusiasts and will share additional information as it becomes available.
