What are Sniff It Trials?
Sniff It is a fun scent work game you can play with your dog, and is one of seven divisions of Wag It! Games. At the Novice level dogs search for food or a light odor of the handler’s choice (think birch, anise, clove, cypress nose work peeps!) At higher levels dogs search for handler scent.
Sniff It trials at See Spot Grin offer opportunities for you to
compete with your dog in a fun, light-hearted way
introduce your dog to a competition environment
practice searching in a new way or a new location
