What could be more fun than to sit back and watch puppies use their almost miraculous gift of scent to solve problems? Scent is often overlooked as an important area of enrichment and that's a shame as it's the primary way that puppies relate to the world. There's no better or more meaningful enrichment for puppies than scent games!

In this episode, we are joined by Ellen Griffin, tracking instructor at the Syracuse Obedience Training Club. Ellen, with her infectious passion for all things scent, guides us through fun and easy scent games that will enrich and delight any dog or puppy.

Various games are demonstrated by puppies aged 5 weeks through 9 months old and all games are suitable for dogs of any age.

While all of the games in the video are suitable and fun for any dog or puppy, if you want to go on to a performance career, this video will give your puppy a great foundation for tracking or obedience. Ellen has trained three dogs to their AKC Tracking Dog title and one to an AKC Tracking Dog Excellent title and she is only second person in the history of the AKC to put a TD on a Bull Terrier, so she's full of creative ideas not just for enrichment, but for motivation, as well.

    Puppy Scent Games

    Posted by Just tracking on 6th May 2019

    I expected this DVD to discuss scent games that would be useful for nose work, detector dog training, barn hunt, and scent fun in general. However, it is very specific to tracking as a competition, and especially to only following humans. I do not need my dogs to follow people step by step, so while I did take a handful of notes the majority of the video did not apply. I feel mislead by the description and title. Also, there is a lot of talk back and forth among the trainers that I felt should have been off camera - it's not as professional as I was expecting based on other products I have seen by Puppy Culture.
