Are you a Scent Work instructor, trial official or professional detection dog handler/trainer looking to offer more sniffing opportunities in your area? Become a Cyber Scent Work Evaluator!

Daci Intermediate Title

Updated 6/1/24, Ver. 1.1

What are the Requirements?

Evaluators are experienced Scent Work instructors, trial officials or professionals with a focused attention to detail, who can administer the program rules (Games or Traditional) fairly and accurately.

Evaluators must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • 3 years of experience as a Scent Work instructor

  • Be an approved and active Scent Work trial official

  • Be a professional detection dog trainer and/or handler.


Evaluators must be familiar with the Rules of the program they will be offering (Games or Traditional).


Evaluators must be 18 years or older and be physically able to complete the tasks of designing and officiating searches.

Why Should I Become an Evaluator?

These are just a few of the reasons to become an approved Evaluator:

  • Provide more sniffing opportunities for your local community.

  • Build interest in your program, classes and events by offering in-person Cyber Sniffing Games and Traditional Cyber Scent Work assessments. Having the opportunity to earn titles and ribbons means your clients will keep coming back for more sniffing fun!

  • Use the Games to test the dog's hunting skills, assessing their strengths and identifying any gaps and how you can best help them. 

  • Test dog and handler teams with Traditional Cyber Scent Work events, preparing them for what they will see in other formal competition venues.

  • Make this work for you and your clients, offer events that fit the spaces available to you and what will best serve your community.

  • As an Evaluator, you can focus on what matters: the searches, the dogs and handlers. Plan events, classes or even private assessments on the fly and when your clients will most benefit from them. 

How Do I Get Started?

It's easy!
