O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc. is an educational and research non-profit organization created out of necessity to address the growing concern of scent detection service dogs not having a standard to ensure dogs are performing their scent tasks accurately and reliably for their disabled handlers. 

As our organization is focused on education, research, and reliability of scent detection service dogs, we are not a program that trains service dogs, nor do we sell already trained service dogs. 


O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc., in collaboration with several canine scent and olfaction researchers, have created standards for the myriad 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. 

Standards are published on our website here, as we believe the standards should be freely available to all trainers and handlers working with scent-based tasks.


As an organization dedicated to promoting the highest level of. reliability and standards expected of service dogs, we also expect high standards of ethics of our members. All O.D.O.R. members agree to abide by our Code of Ethics.
