United States Canine Scent Sports


Officials and competitors alike will find these courses helpful as they navigate USCSS™ trials.

Hide Placement for Trial

Whenever an official sets a hide at a trial, it should be a thoughtful and well-planned process in an attempt to pose a particular odor puzzle to each dog and handler team. A course geared toward all trial officials, especially those with United States Canine Scent Sports, you will learn how to ensure each hide is successful at your next trial!

Judge and CSD Certification Course

Judges and CSDs are the backbone of USCSS™. They must have a full understanding of the Official Rules, how the Classes and Games are to be organized, designed, run and officiated as well as understand their overall roles at a trial. While a requirement for all USCSS™ officials, competitors will also find this course exceedingly helpful.
