Having fun with your dog

Beginning your dog’s scent detection training.

Learn how to do scent work with your dog. Begin training your dog’s ability to search on cue. These classes are fantastic for dogs of all ages. Scent detection is a great way to bond with your dog. You’ll work as a team, building trust and connection as you search and find together. It’s a fun activity you can do together and a great way to keep your dog’s mind active and engaged.

Explore New Areas

One of the most important things we’ll learn in this class is how to search effectively. This means not just knowing what you’re looking for but also being able to communicate with your dog so that they can help you find it. Part of this will be learning about different scent detection styles and how to work with your dog’s strengths. But don’t worry, we’ll also have a lot of fun while doing it!

Teamwork is key

Scent detection is teamwork. You and your dog will work together to search and find — building trust and connection.

Start to build your dog’s scent detection library.

Your dog’s nose is one of the most vital tools for finding things. You can harness this tool by teaching your dog to seek specific scents.

Increase your dog’s ability to focus on the find.

Build your dog’s ability to search for longer and harder finds by teaching them to love the challenge.

Our Happy Clients!

Love the Scentwork classes with Iain. Have done the beginner lessons and intermediate lessons too. Luna and Seren absolutely love it, they’re very excited when we pull up in the car as they recognise the place and can’t wait to get started. It’s a great way to tire them out too, both are fast asleep in the car on the way home. Definitely a good way to bond with your doggos.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need any prior training?

No prior scent work experience is needed for the foundation courses.

If you want to attend the intermediate sessions. You must have completed the foundation course with us or have prior experience. Please get in touch with us if you have started your training elsewhere.

What scent to use for scent training?

In the foundation course, we will be using clove scent. You will be shown how to lower the intensity and how to minimise cross-contamination in the early stages of training.

Once your dog understands the concept of scent detection, you can teach them to search for any scent you would like to add to their “scent library”.

What do I need for class?

Bring your dog to class in a body harness or flat collar, on a standard lead and some yummy treats for them.

At home, you will need a small airtight jar, some earbuds and dried cloves

Are there class note handouts for each class?
