What are Detection Dog Trials (DDT)?
Detection Dog Trials is a new sport being brought to North America which allows formally trained detection dogs to participate in scentwork style trials. Teams are able to trial on the odor their dog is already trained on (i.e. narcotics, accelarants, cadaver, etc.) and gain titles and awards for their success!
What odors are accepted?
The current accepted odors include: birch, clove, gun oil, truffle oil, catnip, kong, cannabis, scentlogix, tobacco, cadaver, cash, narcotics, accelarents, digital, gluten, and blood.
