SCENT DETECTION - Scent training for all dogs
TURN YOUR DOG INTO A DETECTION DOG
All dogs love to sniff - whether hunting, sniffing on walks, snuffling for their dinner in snuffle mats or scatter feeding etc.
Olfaction (the sense of smell) is a dogs primary sense & they love using thier noses! They will naturally sniff out things that they like & find rewarding, which releases happy chemical messengers in thier brain. You can use this enjoyable natural sniffing ability to train your dogs to search for & locate a specific target scent whilst working with you as a handler/dog team. Scentwork will really boost your relationship & as studies have suggested, your dogs confidence & optimism.
Join us at our Scentwork & Detection training classes & events to have some serious sniffing fun. As you progress through your scentwork journey you will open many oportunities to expand your knowledge & grow your searches.
From scent id, indication & search skills, handling techniques, search planning, environmental searching & to even solving mysteries! There is so much enjoyment for both you & your dog.
