Who is this for? Anyone that wants to do something fun and worthwhile with their dog. Scentwork is a great way to use your dog’s brain and of course their nose! Our Scentwork courses are based around the Scentwork UK lesson plans and aim to get you and your dog to Level 1 standard and beyond with courses and refresher days. Great for any age of dog, and perfect for those unable to do other activities for health reasons.
Our courses are designed to set the correct foundations ready for a career in scentwork - letting your dog learn at their pace and love what they are doing. Our classes are small to enable lots of individual training and work. Work towards our trials (great whether you are competitive or not)
Taught by Scentwork UK accredited trainer John Ashworth; John is a retired police dog handler of over 10 years, and current NHS drug dog handler. With a long standing career in all things scentwork, you know you and your dog are in good hands.
