Scent Works or Nose Work is becoming more and more popular all over the world not only as a competitive dog sport but also for its therapeutic benefits as well.
Both my dogs love it and I teach classes for www.facebook.com/sleuthhoundz in South Australia
ANKC (Australian National Kennel Club) are in the process of finalising details in order to start having trials in Australian hopefully in early 2021
The odours we supply are from an approved source for ANKC and are 100% Essential Oil.
We supply the following odours which are approved by the ANKC
Clove Bud - Eugenia Carophyllata
Sweet Birch - Betula Lental
Cypress - Cupressus Sempervirens
Anise - Pimpinella Anisum
Pre-made Q Tip Bud preparation and strength
We prepare the Q tips using the absorption process, not the direct drop process and are made upto ANKC approved strength.
They will be made up to order to ensure they are as fresh as possible.
Competitive ANKC will use 4 different odours
Approved ANKC strength 2 drops of odour on a cotton ball placed in a glass jar of 30 Q tip buds
The Q tips we supply have paper stems and cotton buds to comply with ANKC and ACSW rules
The Q tip pots are made up to order to make them as fresh as possible.
Pure Odour Bottles
Odour goes a long way and lasts a long time so we are supplying small 2ml bottles of odour which should keep you going for at least 100 Q tips. Our 2ml bottles are amber in colour (which lets less light in) and have a screw top
Odour gets out of everything even if we can't smell it our dogs can.
It is recommended that your glass Q tip jars be stored in a sealed container and put somewhere your dogs will not go. It is also advised that if you are storing more than one kind of odour you do not store them in the same place.
Odour hygiene is huge, we can practise all we want but still stuff our dogs up if our odour hygiene is lazy or thoughtless for this reason all odour kits will come with some odour hygiene helpful hints
I am also teaching my own dogs scenting and totally understand getting the correct odour and strength of odour is essential for giving you and your dog every chance of success, great care has gone into preparing the odour for you.
