The National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW)

In January 2009, the first official NACSW Trial was held in Southern California. The sport continues to grow every year with trials being held in almost every state in the country. NACSW Trials have earned a reputation for being an innovative, exciting, and supportive competition venue. NACSW Trials are the original detection dog sport and remains the gold standard in the quality of the overall experience of each competitor. Trials are well organized events put on by local trial hosts, supported by Certifying Officials, judges, and volunteers.  These events provide a challenging yet enjoyable experience for all.
