Our Approach to Scentwork

Next Level scent and tracking training program is designed to teach your dog how to track a variety of scents, including human scent, animal scent, and even specific odors. We start with basic scent recognition exercises and gradually increase the difficulty level to ensure that your dog becomes a skilled and reliable tracker. In addition to tracking scents, we also teach your dog how to locate lost objects, such as keys or cell phones. This can be a useful skill for everyday life, and it can also be applied in professional settings, such as law enforcement or search and rescue operations.
