    The PBGVCA MNJPBGVA Hunt Test captures the beauty of the Spring hunting season. Come join us in April, in Carlisle, PA, when the weather will be lovely, and the rabbits plentiful! The hunt grounds are totally fenced in, very safe for our hounds. For those new to hunting, the Hunting Instinct Test is geared towards dogs and their handlers who have little or no hunting experience. We also have a Puppy Learning Experience for babies 3-6 months. Hunt Tests have a chill atmosphere, so they are a great place to meet other PBGV owners who share a love of doing what their dogs were meant to do!! Opening/closing dates for this trial are March 13, opening, April 12, closing. Email entries only. Come join us April 19-21, Carlisle, PA!

    Questions to: Lora Megli, lmegli@yahoo.com

    Fascinating fact: Dogs have a sense of smell that’s between 10,000 and 100,000 times more acute than ours! The sport of Scent Work celebrates the joy of sniffing, and asks a dog to sniff to their heart’s content; turning your dog’s favorite activity into a rewarding game. It is a terrific sport for all kinds of dogs, and is a wonderful way to build confidence in a shy dog.

    In so many dog sports the handler is in control but this isn’t true in Scent Work. Neither the dog nor handler knows where the target odor is hidden. The handler has to rely on the dog, and follow the dog’s nose to success. In Scent Work, it is the canine who is the star of the show.

    The sport of Scent Work is based on the work of professional detection dogs (such as drug dogs), employed by humans to detect a wide variety of scents and substances. In AKC Scent Work, dogs search for cotton swabs saturated with the essential oils of Birch, Anise, Clove, and Cypress. The cotton swabs are hidden out of sight in a pre-determined search area, and the dog has to find them. Teamwork is necessary: when the dog finds the scent, he has to communicate the find to the handler, who calls it out to the judge.
