Scent work for Beginners

In this 8 week course you will learn how to build confidence and fun into teaching your dog to find scented articles. We will start with basic searches to build your dog's confidence finding articles and introduce handler skills to learn how to work in partnership with your dog. We will gradually increase the difficulty of the search (new search containers, adding height, and more difficult to access finds). We follow Talking Dogs Scent work approach which is designed to be fun for the dog and handler, with little pressure. At the end of the course if you have caught the bug, you can join our progressive class and work on more challenging searches in our monthly Scent work Club.
