What is C-WAGS Scent Detectives?

C-WAGS offers competitions in obedience, rally, games and a scent work division called Scent Detectives. If you’re looking for another enjoyable opportunity to test your scent work skills with your dog using birch, anise or clove, the C-WAGS Scent Detectives program offer six levels to keep you challenged in new ways.

  • compete with your dog in a fun, easy going manner
