Preparing for the Odor Recognition Test

(ORT) Webinar

The Odor Recognition Test (ORT) is the first step in your trialing career with the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW™). In this webinar, we will discuss what this test is all about and how to prepare for it.

Webinar Details

Odor Recognition Tests may not be offered often in your area. When one is scheduled you will want to do everything you can to ensure you pass! Beginning July 1, 2020 teams will have to pass all THREE odors in order to enter an NACSW™ trial. This is even more incentive to be sure you are prepared to take the test. While your dog may do well in class or at home, the added stress of a testing situation will add some difficulty. Don't wing it - prepare for it! This webinar will help you do just that.
