We’re excited to be offering our first Scent and Detection training course on Monday 1st May (May Day Bank Holiday) [EDIT: May 1st is now FULL. We are running a repeat workshop on Monday 29th May (Spring Bank Holiday)]. Scent and Detection dogs are in use all over the world to find specific scents – including explosives, illegal substances, and diseases! – and the same training can be used with our own pet dogs. Scent work training uses a dog’s natural abilities to identify, source, and indicate a specific scent in any environment.

Claire will be covering the foundation for scent and detection training, and the course will cover:

  • Introduction: the basics of scent training and canine olfaction, how scent works, and what we want from detection dogs
  • Starting your dog with toy detection
  • Transferring toy detection onto a chosen target scent

Please note that dogs will be working individually on this training course, and whilst they are not working, your dog must be secured in your vehicle. All breeds can participate, and due to the structure of the training, dogs who are reactive toward other dogs are also welcome.
