    Scent work is a great game which requires calmness and concentration and can be done indoors, outdoors, and involve all of the family. You work together as a team to search areas for a specific scent in a similar way to dogs doing explosives work.It is a fantastic activity for all dogs and can help with training areas from recall to general confidence building, especially for dogs suffering from anxiety issues.
