  • Scent discrimination (targeting a particular scent)

  • Teaching dogs to ‘indicate’ (pause/sit/down/bark when identifies correct scents)

All of the above will be practiced inside in different scenarios. There may be a short break for the dogs in between activities.

During this session we will tutor you and your dog how to preform and progress each activity.

This workshop is perfect for dogs who like to use their nose but unfortunately due to other dogs present they must be able to socialise well with other dogs.

Anyone is welcome to come and observe the techniques used during this workshop in the event their dog cannot come to class, it is £5 per person (with no dog).
