Dogs are made to sniff!
Nose work exercises your dogs mind and taps into their natural instincts, it is said that ten minutes of sniffing is more tiring than an hour’s run.
Sessions in scent detection will teach you and your dog indication training, scent identification and the ability to search for that scent in line ups and various environments.
It is a low impact activity that not only provides a physical outlet but also activates your dog’s olfactory senses for an intense mental workout too. People are always amazed how relaxed and clam their dogs are after they have been searching.
All dogs can take part in nose work. The benefits include:
Gives your dog a job so they don’t go self employed.
Sniffing releases dopamine which makes our dogs feel good and also helps reduce anxiety.
Suitable for puppies, adult dogs, older dogs, nervous dogs, dogs in recovery, antisocial dogs, blind or deaf dogs.
Stimulates a hyperactive dog in a calming way to reduce energy and provide an appropriate outlet.
A great way to share mental and physical exercise with your dog and build a happy relationship.
Helps increase optimism through problem solving.
Fun and easy to play anywhere, great for a rainy day.

“We took the scent detection course with Dee and Taffy our cocker spaniel loved it! Dee was very patient and clear in the instructions.
We learned lots of different ways to work with Taffy and tips on how to get the best out of the course.
We would definitely recommend and we hope to continue with Taffy’s progress.”
