About Using Scentwork Skills With Working Dogs

Masterclass Available From 2nd September

This Masterclass is going to give an introduction to Scentwork and covers how you can involve Scentwork Skills into your training by searching for and retrieving a scented article. 

Dogs have up to 300 million olfactory receptors compared to our 6 million, they can smell 100,000 times better than us and their sense of smell is so sensitive that they can detect half a teaspoon of sugar in an Olympic sized swimming pool. 

Given the dog’s ability to smell, Scentwork is a really great way of harnessing the dog’s nose into constructive “work” that is fun for both you and the dog, it is suitable for all ages and sizes of dogs and you don’t need much equipment in order to have great fun with your dog. 

Scentwork is a great activity for rainy days or when your dog is on limited rest or outside of the shooting season. Scentwork encourages your dog to use their nose, which is great mental stimulation, and channels their natural behaviour in an appropriate way.

Simple and Easy
