Don't worry about the scent if you've got wild housecats to work with.
I've got beagles that will run cottontails , snowshoes ( hare ) , jacks , or swampers. It don't make no difference to them , a rabbit is a rabbit. And so it is with cats. If they'll run a housecat , they'll run a bobcat/mountain lion. The cats may run a little different , but I believe they all smell somewhat the same. Not exactly alike , but alot alike.
Just find a creek crossing a dirt road and brush the edges of the road and go back in the morning and look for tracks. When you find some , try the dog on them.
You might have to go a night or two checking the crossing every couple hours to get the dog on a hot one , but it'll figure things out.
