O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc., in collaboration with several canine scent and olfaction researchers, have created standards for the myriad of scent tasks a service dog may be trained to perform. More standards may be added in the future, and existing standards may be modified as we learn more about canine olfaction and refining testing methods to reduce or eliminate handler bias. O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc. has also published a Public Access Test as a minimum standard expected of a service dog's behavior in public.
