Scentwork

I am delighted to be able to welcome Pam Mackinnon of Talking Dogs to the south west an for Introduction to Scentwork Workshop and then follow on courses throughout the year.

This is open to ANY BREED of dog not just cockers. It is for the pet owner and for fun.


Many of you will have heard me raving on about Talking Dogs Ltd. and the Scent Work courses (or sniffing mouse days as they are known in this house) that Krumble and I have done. It is a great day, but you WILL go home tired! There are some other scent days out there, but this is the real thing. 

Run by an ex customs & excise officer who has trained and worked her own drugs, cash and explosive detection dogs for many years, you get to know the theory behind how and why dogs scent, how the scent travels etc and then you get to have a go.  ALL of your dogs will be scenting by the end of the day, I will guarantee it.  More info on the days events can be found here.


This is a FUN day, and although by the end of it you will all be convinced you are the next customs dog team, no previous experience is necessary.
 

ALL dogs can do this, yeap, even the old ones, the ones that don't play, the ones that won't focus, the ones that are impossible to train, they can, and all WILL do it.

This course may be suitable for dog reactive dogs but please contact me to discuss prior to booking.

After you have attend the first workshop I am sure you will be hooked!  Scentwork 2 is all about extending the search time, adding in height and direction and basically getting more addicted!  Please see below for venues and dates.

In spring 2014 I achieved my TDS Accredited Trainer status so keep checking back for more workshop dates.  We are totally addicted and I'd be really surprized if you walked away not wanting more.

If you would like additional information or would like to book a place, please contact us using the buttons at the top.

Important notice: These workshops are not set up for teaching or working with passive indications (the dog sits, stares or stops at the find instead of retrieving it) and as such handlers wishing to work on a passive indication will not be able to work their dogs. Due to the extra time passive training takes up in the workshop, I’m afraid this rule must be enforced. Please keep an eye on the Talking Dogs website for further information about future passive workshops.
