The Nose Knows!
Dogs have a highly sensitive nose, vastly superior to our own. Scentwork is a natural behaviour for a dog and essential in hunting and finding prey. This behaviour has been put to many uses – for example in search and rescue, police work, hunting and as a sport.
As a training activity, scentwork is fun, very rewarding and at the same time mentally tiring for your dog. It will improve the relationship between you and your dog and is a great confidence builder especially for the shy dog.
This is a great option for reactive dogs or who are too distracted by other and a great way to boost your dog's confidence
Held in a woodland in South Cheriton on Mondays
Each session is an hour long and £22.
