Search Dogs

  • Scent Detection

    This involves teaching your dog to search for a specific odour, (clove, gun oil, truffle oil, kong and catnip) ,Once your dog understands the game is to locate and identify these target odours. we begin to hide articles in different locations. The more advanced your dog gets, the more challenging we make the hides.

    Scent work is a great way to engage physically with your dog, and it also mentally stimulating, It's a sport that is suitable for any size or breed of dog, regardless of fitness levels. It builds confidence in dogs, it's good for old dogs or ones with mobility issues too.
