Scentwork

Utilise your dog's most incredible superpower! 

Scentwork is a fun, low impact and inclusive activity for dogs of all ages and abilities. In our classes, dogs are worked one at a time to ensure that they not only get 1-2-1 attention, but also to keep them as comfortable and happy as possible! This means classes are suitable for reactive dogs.  

Our scentwork classes are taught by UK College of Scent Dogs accredited instructor, Jack Fenton, who has learnt from many different trainers and organisations including the UKCSD, Talking Dogs and the School of Canine Science. 

Like with all of our classes, scentwork lessons are all about dogs and handlers enjoying themselves, with no pressure. However, we training to a competition standard should you want to compete with your dog in the future. We even run in-house competitions!
