Uk Sniffer Dogs – Scent work for dogs of all ages, breeds and temperaments. This is a Nose Work Taster Session, a fun workshop to introduce you and your dog to the world of scent. Dogs love to sniff. They have their noses glued to the ground at every available opportunity. Where we may check Facebook or read a newspaper to find out what’s happening, dogs use their noses to gain information. This workshop will show you how to use your dogs natural scenting ability for some detection fun. You will learn how to train your dog to identify a scent using search techniques. Nose work is a great fun activity, suitable for all dogs, regardless of breed and age. It is also useful to calm nervous dogs, exercise the brain, build the relationship between you & your dog and its fun and dogs love it. No previous training or experience needed. Come along and have fun with your dog. The taster session is to give you the opportunity to see if you and your dog enjoy it and if you do there is the opportunity to sign up for a 6 week course.
The workshop is 2hours long.
Come along and learn the skills to train your dog to be a sniffer dog. No previous training or experience needed.
