About Scent Classes
Why Scent work?
Your dog has an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt.
These scentwork classes focus on encouraging and developing your dog’s natural scenting abilities.
This is an ideal way for your dog to have fun, build confidence and burn lots of mental and physical energy.
This is a class where dogs get to be dogs.
All too often we ask our dogs to stop using their primary sense and instead see the world how we humans view it.
In these classes we honour the dog for his natural abilities and give him a legitimate outlet for him to use them.
Your dog’s choice
Would be scent work classes.
These classes are perfect for all dogs regardless of age, size, breed or personality.
Each dog will build confidence in new environments and work around obstacles without the stress of interacting with other dogs. This makes it perfect for those dogs that can struggle in group settings.
We’ve developed a class that works with each dog as an individual with progression based on the dog-handler team’s ability and experience. We run just one class for everyone so you’ll be able to watch and learn from teams with different levels of experience.
Step 1 – Novice Nose
The first step into your dog’s world. You’ll teach your dog to search for a specific scent and learn the basics of handling.
Step 2 – Handler Skills
You’ll learn how to direct your dog through a search pattern for maximum efficiency while extending your dog’s experience and confidence in the search.
Step 3 – Meet new challenges
Challenges set at just the right level to push you and your dog’s skills forward. Learn just what you are capable of together.
