Getting Involved


Why get our pets involved with  scent work?   Scent is all encompassing in our dog's world.  Our dogs have the ability to somewhat shut out their other senses when they are searching for a scent.   The fact that our dogs allow  us into that world through their indications, on the find of the scent source, is really quite an incredible thing.    It strengthens the bond between us and our dog.  The partnership that you feel with your dog when they are on a scent is just incredible.

Dogs put a huge amount of energy into scent work.  This makes scent work tremendously good at providing satisfying mental stimulation, an invaluable tool for those who are unable to get out and about. 

All Breeds


Come and learn why all breeds can benefit from our scent work series.  Pet dogs  find it extremely calming and an amazing influence in their lives for the better.   Owners find it fun too!

Book Today


There are limited spaces available so early booking is advised.  Bring your dog along to our dog trainer for a Series 1  Scent Workshop, where they will  become part of  the  UK Sniffer Dog Team, for some great fun and learning.  Gain your Series 1 Certificate on completion of the workshop.
