For Individuals Interested in Becoming Judges

On September 1, applications to become an AKC Scent Work judge under the “Opt-In” Procedure will no longer be accepted. (Those applications received prior to September 1 will still be processed.)

The permanent licensing process for AKC Scent Work judges will be finalized and announced by November 1, 2017. This procedure will include apprenticing under existing AKC Scent Work judges. For all apprenticeships you must receive the consent of the judge, and the club hosting the trial.
