“We tried Agility and Hoopers which didn’t really suit us. Scentwork however, is really enjoyable for both of us. We can do it anywhere and anytime. Bonus is Skye sleeps for hours afterwards! Classes were fun and easy-going.”

Successful settlements for former 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.
Emily, Luna and Seren
Have just finished a Scentwork foundation course with my dog. We both enjoyed the sessions and Iain gave us lots of useful tips for training. I will be back to take part in more courses. I can definitely recommend Positive 4 Paws
