- Joy of Choice: Entry Options
We are super-duper excited to announce something new from Cyber Scent Work: the power of choice. That’s right, you will now have the option of choosing from submitting a scorecard only entry or a scorecard with feedback entry. With the scorecard only option, you will have your video entry scored without receiving custom feedback. This means you will still receive a scorecard, outlining how you fared against the 20 test items, earn Q’s and progress toward earning Element and Level titles and ribbons. However, you will no longer receive video training feedback on your search. This option is offered at a reduced price point of $25 per entry. This presents a low-cost option for those competitors who are focused on accumulating Q’s but do not necessarily want to receive feedback on every entry. We founded Cyber Scent Work to deliver quality training advice to competitors playing the game of Scent Work, bridging the gap between training and trialing. Thus, we encourage everyone to continue utilizing the full-service offered with the scorecard with feedback entry. These entries include custom feedback with training tips from our experienced Review Officials regardless of whether you pass the search or not. We’ve simplified the pricing, so that all scorecard with feedback entries, regardless of level, cost $45 per entry. Also, in case you missed it… As of June 2022, all feedback from the Review Officials is now provided via video. Training advice and feedback is no longer available via text on the scorecard. This new format allows Review Officials to point out specific moments in your search video to comment on as well as provide pointed and individualized training advice. Truly enhancing the experience, clients are loving this change. If you haven’t tried it yet, we hope you will soon.

- Updated Version of Rules
We are delighted to announce that we have completely revamped and overhauled the Rules & Regulations to make them easier to navigate, read and to make a few adjustments to the program itself. You may see the new version of the Rules & Regulations (Ver. 1.3) on our site here. Please be certain to refer to the Rules when submitting new entries. These updated Rules include a few changes to the search criteria, mostly at the upper levels. The changes are described on page 2 of the Rules but the highlights include: - Changes to the range in the number of vehicles or containers required in those Elements (applies to all levels). - Changes to the number of distractors by search area; you may now choose among a list of distractors (Intermediate and above) with a maximum of 2 distractors per search area. - Changes to the odor puzzle requirements for Advanced, Master, Expert. - Master level is now limited to two consecutive search areas. In addition, there were substantial updates to clarify common questions (roles of handler and assistant, what to include in video submission, etc.), and to reorganize the Level and Element-specific requirements of each search into a more accessible format. We hope you’ll find these updates helpful. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have, we are always happy to help. #cyberscentwork #rulesupdate #scentwork #nosework #scentworktrialing #noseworktrialing #onlinescentwork #onlinenosework #virtualscenwork #virtualnosework #cybernosework

- Element Title Ribbons are HERE!
A huge "THANK YOU" to our ribbon vendor, Clearview Ribbon Company for creating these beautiful Element Title ribbons for us. As a reminder, we are issuing these ribbons retroactively. Thus, if you earned an Element title in the past, expect an Element Title ribbon in the mail! However, we want to ensure everyone receives their ribbons! Therefore, please login to your CSW account to double-triple check that your mailing address is correct. You may do this by logging in and clicking the MY ACCOUNT icon. If you need to update your address, simply click on EDIT PROFILE to make the change. To give everyone time to update their information, we will begin mailing out these Element Title ribbons next week. There are even MORE exciting developments in the works, so be sure to stay tuned. Happy Training!

- Element Title RIBBONS!!!
You read that right, not only will you receive a title ribbon when you earn a Level title, you will also receive a title ribbon when you earn an Element title as well! WOOHOO! "I'M SO SAD!" ...Well, that was not the reaction we were hoping for... "I EARNED AN ELEMENT TITLE BEFORE THIS CHANGE, BOOOOO!" Oh, that explains it! Never fear, this change is retroactive. "...retroactive?" Yup. That means as soon as we have the brand-new pretty Element title ribbons in our hands, we will start mailing them out to all the teams who have earned Element titles up until this point. "So...so...so that means I WILL get more pretty ribbons?" If you earned an Element title with us, yes, more pretty ribbons are on the way. "YIPEE!" I know right?! However, there is one tiny little catch. "I KNEW IT!" You must login to your Cyber Scent Work, Inc. dashboard, click the MY PROFILE icon and ensure your mailing address is up to date. Otherwise, your Element ribbons may simply be lost, out there in the world, not being admired by you. "Oh, I can do that! I want my ribbons!" And we want you to have them. As soon as we receive these new Element title ribbons from our ribbon vendor, who is working very hard to make them for us, we will start mailing them out. Are you ready to get started? Create a free account here. Be sure to look over the Rules and check out the FAQs and Resources page. We also have a series of video tutorials available on our YouTube page. Have a question? Do not hesitate to ask! We are always happy to help! Get out there and play some Scent Work with your pups. As we always say, sniffing for the WIN!
- Video Reviews - OH MY!
We are incredibly excited about the new way we are going to be providing our reviews and training feedback to our clients: video reviews! "WOW...wait, what does that even mean?!" It means that when you submit a video of your search to us, our Review Officials will record their computer screen as they are reviewing that video. "Okay..." This means you will be able to see, in real-time, what your Review Official is reacting to! Not only that, but your Review Official will have the ability to point out, in incredibly specific detail, what you and your dog are doing throughout your search and what to do going forward. Even better, their training advice may include ways you leverage the very same search area! WOW! These video reviews will take our reviews to the next level. We have been working exceedingly hard the past few months building this functionality into the site. To say we are thrilled this is now officially live and available for all of you is an understatement! "That sounds great...but, what do I actually receive when I submit an entry now?" Great question! Once a review is completed, you will receive a confirmation email, similar to what you see below: This email will contain a link to your video review, links to any suggested resources the Review Officials thinks will be helpful for you and your dog, as well as a .PDF version of the score card highlighting how you and your dog did throughout the search. Not only that, all of this information will also be available through your account on the Cyber Scent Work, Inc. site. Therefore, you may login at any time to see these video reviews, resources and score cards, as well as any of your earned Element or Level title certificates, right from your CSW Dashboard! We are absolutely thrilled with this change and think it will help dogs and handlers get even more out of participating with Cyber Scent Work, Inc.! Are you ready to get started? Create a free account here. Be sure to look over the Rules and check out the FAQs and Resources page. We also have a series of video tutorials available on our YouTube page. Have a question?
