BASIC DESCRIPTION OF TEST - to successfully pass an ORT a dog must identify the location of the target odor and the handler must correctly call an "alert" within a three-minute time period. The Odor Recognition Test consists of a drill type exercise which requires 12 closed boxes set up in a pattern of one or two rows, spaced a minimum of 48" apart. The ORT is conducted on leash. Complete information can be obtained on the NACSWTM website.
