American Kennel Club Scent Trials at the Museum
May 7 @ 10:00 am - May 8 @ 5:00 pm
Join us on May 7th and 8th, 2022 from 10:00am – 5:00pm for: The American Kennel Club Scent Trials at the Museum!
After the tragic events of 9/11, there was a push in this country, due to the increased demand for detection and search and rescue dogs, to increase focus on scent training and breeding programs domestically. Scent work is a sport that helps nurture and develop scent skills in dogs. Breeders can ‘prove’ their line’s ability to do scent work by earning titles. It is a seriously popular and exciting sport for everyone who trains and competes with their dog. It is also super fun to watch! So join us and the event’s sponsor, Albany Obedience Club, as we host American Kennel Club Scent Trials at the Museum.
The scent work sport will take place inside and outside of the Museum building, with as many as 80-90 teams competing during the event! Also during this event, there will be a canine-inspired Scavenger Hunt in the Museum for kids. Free admission will be offered during the first day of the event (May 7th, Saturday) from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Museum general admission resumes on day two of the event (May 8th, Sunday).
PLEASE NOTE: ONLY CANINES REGISTERED FOR THIS EVENT WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE GROUNDS.
Free admission to the Museum and the scavenger hunt activity were made possible by a generous grant award from the Museum’s Super Saturdays sponsor: Hudson River Bank and Trust Co. Foundation
