Why Should Every Dog Have A Scentwork Enrichment Routine?

Dogs experience their world through a highly developed olfactory system. The ability to detect the smallest scent has long been utilised to our advantage, but how can we take this knowledge and use it to provide stimulation and enrichment for our dogs?
Written by a former professional military search dog trainer and handler, the Canine Scentwork Enrichment Certificate course is a great foundation for understanding canine search.
