The Board approved holding a Scent Work trial at the 2023 National. In order to make this a reality, we need a group of volunteers to organize it. The first step to hosting a trial is to get AKC approval for the DPCA to hold a Scent Work trial.  

The AKC approval form states: Please list the five (5) club members that have the most knowledge and experience in Scent Work and describe their experience and duration in the sport: Minimum requirements: Scent Work judge 2 years, exhibitor 2 years, list titles earned.

Scent Work instructor 3 years. Scent Work Trial Secretary/Chair list years of experience. 

We need 5 members that meet these criteria to take on the task of organizing the event.  Additional helpers are welcome, but we must meet these criteria at a minimum. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the National Show Committee at
