K9 Nose Time Games – Scent Detectives

Wednesday, November 1, 2023

We will have two searches running simultaneously.  You can enter 1 or both.
SEARCH AREA 1: Independence Level 2

Odours: Birch or Anise. For dogs at all levels. 

SEARCH AREA 2: Scent Detective – For dogs training/competing competently at NW2/NW3/Excellent/Masters Level

Make sure your dog has trained for all odours, longer time limits (up to 5min) and for potentially distracting and unexpected environments/searches. The parameters of the search will be revealed at the start line. Good luck.


Scent Detectives – Games nights!

What is scent detectives?
Scent Detectives are fun games designed for K9 Nose Timers (and friends) that focus on some of the key foundations we build when starting out in the sport. Each of our dogs has different skills and styles of searching, which skill does your dog excel at? Which one could you use a little more training at? Come and find out!
You can run the level 1-3 games in a number of different ways: please note you can not run the highest level ‘ Scent Detective’ as an unknown search. 
  • You can use this as a training exercise and know where the hides are.
  • You can run it ‘blind’ and be eligible to get a ribbon if you pass.
Other things to note:
  • The judge will go over the rules for each game at the start line.
  • You may watch other teams if you have their permission.
  • You can video and photograph.
  • There is no walk-through
