Welcome to the Organization for Detection and Olfaction Reliability of Service Dogs (O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc.) blogs page. We are an educational and research Nonprofit Corporation, whose mission is the promotion and implementation of scent detection standards for service dog teams. Our Board of Directors is comprised of individuals who have many years of experience in scent detection and service dog training, as well as a passion for continued research and education in this field. These Directors have created Standards by which O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc. Evaluators can evaluate a service dog and their handlers skills in Gluten/Allergen Detection, Medical Scent Detection, and Public Access. These Standards are designed to be a minimum standard that service dog team is able to perform in these categories in order to be safe in public and provide safe and appropriate assistance to their handler. We believe by creating these Standards and a community of handlers and trainers who are working towards achieving these standards or have achieved these standards we will be able to help people in the community with disabilities and illnesses whose life can be significantly improved by the help of a well trained and reliable service dog.
