Teach your dog to become a detective. Courses and workshops currently held in Hurstpierpoint.

Scent detection training is used all over the world for working and operational services. Our amazing dogs have been used to search for drugs, bombs, firearms, cash, contraband, and missing people.
In recent years dogs have been trained for medical alert and detection (diabetes and epilepsy) and even detecting cancer cells in humans.
These classes and workshops aim to give you the skills to train and take part in scent training activities with your dog, just like the working ‘sniffer dog’!
Join the course or workshops and your dog will be given positive scent experiences. Teaching them to work and play with scent improves their life. This can also help rectify problems when it comes to behaviour.
Some of the benefits of scent work:
  • Mental stimulation – Gives your dog a positive focus that benefits everyone
  • Physical workout – 10 minutes of scent work is more tiring than an hour's run
  • Creates happy dogs – Scientifically proven that sniffing releases happy endorphins
The power of nose work is endless!
All dogs can benefit from classes and workshops from puppies, adult dogs, dogs in recovery, and nervous dogs.

Fun fact: Dogs can smell 100,000 times better than humans! Their sense of smell is so sensitive they can detect half a teaspoon of sugar in an Olympic sized swimming pool.
