What you will learn in your Scentwork Foundations course?


Beginning your scent work for dogs training

Learn how to do scent work with your dog. Begin training your dog’s ability to search on cue.

Explore New Areas

One of the most important things we’ll be learning 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 be having a lot of fun while we’re doing it!

Team work in key

Scent detection is team work. 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 strongest tools they have for finding things. You can harness this tool by teaching your dog to seek out specific scents.

Increase your dog’s abilty to focus on the find

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

Have fun together

These classes are fantastic for dogs of all ages. Scent detection is a great way to bond with your dog. You’ll be working as a team, building trust and connection as you search and find together. It’s a fun activity that you can do together, and it’s also a great way to keep your dog’s mind active and engaged.

So go ahead and give it a try – you might just be surprised at how much fun you have.

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.

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.
