American Kennel Club Scent Trials at the Museum | May 7, 2022 | FASNY Firefighting Museum

Join us on May 7 and 8, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 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 increased demand for detection and search and rescue dogs, to place more emphasis on training and breeding programs odors at the national level. Scent work is a sport that helps nurture and develop dogs’ scent skills. Breeders can “prove” their line’s ability to do scent work by earning titles. It is a very popular and exciting sport for anyone who trains and competes with their dog. It’s also super fun to watch! So join us and event sponsor, Albany Obedience Club, as we host American Kennel Club scent trials at the Museum.

The sport of scent work will take place inside and outside the Museum building, with up to 80-90 teams competing during the event! In addition, during this event, there will be a canine-inspired treasure hunt in the Museum for children. Free admission will be offered on the first day of the event (May 7, Saturday) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. General museum admission resumes on the second day of the event (May 8, Sunday).

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY CANINES REGISTERED FOR THIS EVENT WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE FIELD.

Free museum admission and scavenger hunt activity was made possible by a generous grant from the museum’s Super Saturdays sponsor: Hudson River Bank and Trust Co. Foundation
