JTDC Will Be Hosting An NACSW ORT
(Odor Recognition Test)
Sunday, November 12, 2017
Trial entry requires that handler/dog teams must have passed the appropriate Odor Recognition Test (ORT) in advance of the trial. The purpose of the ORT is to verify that the dogs know the target odor (scent) used in competition. Successful passage of an ORT requires a dog to identify the location of the target odor and the handler to correctly call an ‘alert’ (or equivalent) within a three-minute time period.
(Note: NACSW registrations and memberships must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the ORT to guarantee that the IDs are received in time for the event. This ORT takes place in the 2017-2018 NACSW membership year. ORT participants must be CURRENT members and must have completed a 2017-2018 NACSW membership or renewal.
