Scentwork training has become hugely popular and is a fantastic way to engage the olfactory system of your dog and exercise them both physically and mentally.
As a Scentwork UK trainer I am delighted to be able to offer you scentwork training for your dog. Whether you are interested in taking part in the Scentwork UK trials or just simply want to try something new and expand on your training knowledge and skills then you will love this course.
Course Learning objectives
Teach the dog to begin searching and engaging their nose for a food or toy reward
To teach the dog to recognise a particular scent (Cloves)
To teach the dog to make both an active indication (retrieve item) and a passive indication (sit or freeze) on detecting the scent
For the dog to indicate the presence of this scent in 4 different searches
A container search - boxes and luggage
An external vehicle search
A tables and chairs search
A boundary search (wall or fence)
By the end of the course you should be ready to conduct your first Scentwork UK trial at level 1.
