Happy Clients


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.

Jackie and Skye

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.
