Scent detection is a new up and coming low impact sport for dogs! It is suitable for all ages of people and dogs. You don’t need any previous experience in scent detection to start; all you need is a dog with a nose!

This course includes Series 1 and Series 2, so after you have completed this you will be able to compete in our trails that run during the year!

This course is 6 weeks long with each lesson being 1hr long 

Lauren, who is a qualified instructor with UK Sniffer Dogs, will be taking the course

You and your dogs will learn:

  • How your dogs smell
  • How to teach a freeze indication and how to create duration onto this
  • Introducing your dog to line up searches of bags and pipes
  • Introducing chair searches
  • Novel environment searches
  • Vehicle searches
  • Increasing the duration of the dog's indication with distance and distraction
  • indicating on a small amount of scent

Sniffing is a naturally calming behaviour for dogs and mentally wears them out; 10 minutes of sniffing is like an hour jog! It is great for working breeds, rescue dogs, puppies, dogs with arthritis and other medical conditions!

So if you want to give your dog’s a job to do to prevent boredom, or you want to build a stronger bond between you and your dog, then this is the course for you!

What you will need:

  • A Red Kong - you need to feed your dog from this for a week before the course - it MUST be red
  • Lots of treats - more than you think!
  • A clicker 
  • A dog with a nose!
  • Bring a bed/ travel crate to rest your dog between exercises - you can always pop them in your car if needed
