During the CPCA trials four separate search scenarios are set up for the dogs. This ensures the winner of the trials has consistently performed well on all four scenarios. During the competition both specialty dogs as well as general service dogs with a detection profile compete against each other. Both Explosive detector dogs and Drug detector dogs are scored in the same event to increase the amount of teams competing.
