PSD is hosting two scent theory and design clinics this Spring. Attendance at one or both is highly recommended for prospective judges. It’s a terrific opportunity to see first-hand what PSD is all about. Judging candidates that can’t make either date can still apply. Please see the application for more details.
In the meantime, after reviewing applications and doing individual follow-up, we are giving conditional approval to certain people with both scent dog sport experience as a competitor and a judge/very experienced scent work teacher. The goal of PSD is to have welcoming, well run trials where people who really love their dogs of all shapes, sizes, and abilities have an awesome day. They may not Q but will have a lot of fun trying plus get some feedback on possible training/handling issues. This is how we can help spread scent work training and help more dogs.
