- New Sniffing Opportunities!
We are delighted to announce that Cyber Scent Work now offers two programs for you to choose from: Cyber Sniffing Games offer individual skills-based challenges that test the skills dogs need to succeed in Scent Work trials. Traditional Cyber Scent Work more closely resembles a formal Scent Work trialing experience. The Traditional program offers six levels of difficulty and four search elements (Interior, Exterior, Vehicle, Container). All about offering choices, we are also excited to announce that you may choose between submitting either an online or in-person entry. To submit an online entry, you may video your search and submit it for our Online Review Officials to review and score. You may also choose to receive training feedback. Alternatively, you may opt to work in-person with an approved Evaluator who will design and officiate the search for you. No need to film the search. The Evaluator will provide you with a paper scorecard at the conclusion of your search. You may then take a photo of this scorecard and submit this, along with your entry and recording fee, to Cyber Scent Work to earn any titles or ribbons. We are in the process of approving Evaluators, so if you are an experienced Scent Work instructor, trial official, professional detection dog trainer or handler, learn more about the Evaluator program here. We are thrilled to offer these new sniffing opportunities and cannot wait to work with you and your pup. Happy Training!

In particular, it was wonderful to hear how Tracy offered the CSW Test Prep classes to help her clients grow and develop their sniffing skills.

- 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?
