About The Event

Looking to learn a fun and new skill with your dog? Want to get into a new hobby that builds on your dogs natural instincts? Want to increase the bond and relationship between you and your dog? Then Talking Dogs Scentwork is ideal for you!

Scentwork is all about teaching your dog to search for a particular scent, building from simple searches onto more complicated search areas and patterns. The course is suitable for dogs of all abilities from beginners to advanced, so whether you have previous experience of scentwork or are completely new to this exciting activity, this course is tailored to you!

This is a 4 or 5 week course, depending on which option you chose (see options below). Small group classes lasting 1.5 hours per session. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 6.00pm-7.30pm.

Classes will be taught using Talking Dogs Scentwork training methods, which are positive and reward based, and adapted to meet the individual needs of each dog. Please note, we only use active indications. Searches will take place both indoors and outside (weather permitting).
