  • Commonly Asked Questions | Cyber Scent Work

    COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS Rule Specific Questions その他 ツール ブレーキシュー サドルバッグ ペダル ロック & ライト ロック CP-CPD09-44-02 ホワイト CP-SPD04-BR-03 / ブルー(2017年限定カラー) CP-SPD04-BR-05 / イエロー (2017年限定カラー) K3-BR120B-C03 / ブルーカモフラージュ K3-BR120B-C06 / グリーンカモフラージュ CP-K4-12180 CP-K5-10710 CP-K5-12180 CP-SPD05 / SPIDER X CP-VP02 / VIPER G フロントライト ANT-ZX1-W ANT-MX1-W ANT-SX1 ANT-SX4n ANT-X0 ANT-X3CS ANT-SX100mu テールライト ANT-EZ400mu ANT-EZ3 ANT-ZX6-R ANT-MX1-R Definitions Definitions WHAT ARE CONSECUTIVE SEARCHES This is when a dog and handler team are expected to go from one search directly to another within a given search element. For example, starting in the Advanced-level of competition, there should be two Interior searches set-up, Interior A → Interior B. A dog/handler team must complete Interior A and then immediately go into Interior B. Teams are permitted to do their designated start line routine (e.g. waiting at the start line for a few seconds to allow the dog to get focused on the search prior to starting ) before they commence their second search. Teams are permitted to have breaks in-between different sets of consecutive searches (e.g. team completes Interior A → Interior B, takes a break and then does Exterior A → Exterior B ). The timer will not resume until the dog’s nose crosses the next start line. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE BEHIND DISTRACTORS To test the dog’s ability to focus on the task at-hand and successfully locate all of the hides. Distractors must never be used to scare, startle or stress out the dog. WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE DOG REACTION TO DISTRACTORS Dogs are permitted to show some interest in a distractor for upwards of 5-seconds. Afterwards, they should go back to work. WHAT IS CONSIDERED A TOY DISTRACTOR These may include any variety of balls (e.g., tennis balls, Chuck-It balls, etc. ), ropes, stuffed dog toys, etc. WHAT IS CONSIDERED A FOOD DISTRACTOR Any foodstuff item that is safe to be consumed by dogs, meaning it may be human-specific or dog-specific treats or food. In the levels that require food distractors, these distractors MUST be contained within a plastic storage container or similar item to prevent the dog from being able to eat the food. No glass containers are permitted for safety reasons. Target odor hides (Birch, Anise and/or Clove ) may NOT be placed inside a food distractor container. REMEMBER: Food distractors may NOT be used in the Food or Paired Odor Tracks. WHAT IS CONSIDERED A PERSON DISTRACTOR Any adult (18 years or older ) human assistant(s). They may be seated, standing or moving around the search area. Person distractors are not to purposefully startle, scare or concern the dog. These are different people from the assistant calling “Yes” or “No”. WHAT IS CONSIDERED A SOUND DISTRACTOR Any item which emits a sound such as a handheld radio, animatronic item, children’s toy, etc. No recordings of common stress-inducing sounds should be used (e.g. thunder, fireworks, barking dogs, etc. ). Sound distractors should NOT be used in a way to startle, scare or concern the dog. WHAT IS CONSIDERED A MOVEMENT DISTRACTOR Any item that will move while the dog is searching. This may include an animatronic item, a flag, tarp, sheet, etc. Movement distractors should NOT be used in a way that is meant to startle, scare or concern the dog. WHAT IS A DISTANCE ODOR PUZZLE This is when the handler is required to stay at the start line as their dog searches. The point of this puzzle is to test the dog’s ability to work away from the handler and for the handler to properly read their dog. This puzzle should be present in the Advanced level. Search areas may be delineated to show which search contains the distance puzzle. WHAT IS THE SILLY HANDLER ODOR PUZZLE This is where the handler will choose from a variety of strange movements and actions that they must do while their dog is working a search. The assistant will have a series of pieces of paper in a bucket or hat for the handler to choose from before they run. These will contain the actions the handler must perform. Some suggestions include: drunken handler, skipping handler, ballerina handler, t-rex handler, hopping handler, aerobics handler, singing handler and so on.

This puzzle is designed to test the dog’s ability to stay focused on the task at-hand and not getting distracted by their handler. This odor puzzle should be present in at least one of the searches in all of the elements at the Master level. WHAT IS THE ENDURANCE ODOR PUZZLE This is when there are 5 or more hides within a given search area. The purpose of this odor puzzle is to test the dog’s endurance and the handler’s ability to read their dog. This odor puzzle should be present in one of the searches in the Interior and Exterior search elements at the Expert level. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE BEHIND BLANK SEARCH AREAS This is to test whether the dog is truly hunting for odor, can properly clear a space and whether the handler can properly read their dog.
