Scentwork for our pets dogs is about teaching them to recognise and sniff out a particular scent. Scents like clove, gun oil & truffle oil are generally used. Our dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt and find things, and our training methods tap into these natural behaviours, making scent training the type of training your dog will love.
The benefits of scentwork are endless. Your dog will have great fun, build confidence and focus as well as burn a lot of mental energy. A scentwork scentwork session will leave your dog feeling calm, relaxed and mentally fulfilled.
Scentwork training will also help to build a better, stronger bond between you and your dog as you will be working as a team.
Our scentwork sessions are open to any breed and age of dog. The activity is low impact so it is suitable for elderly dogs or ones with injuries or illness.
Whether you want to compete at trials or just use scentwork for your dog's weekly enrichment, our beginner scentwork classes will give you the very best foundations.
No previous experience is necessary!
