The level 1 course
The 6 week course teaches your dog to find and identify a specific odour, which we have taught them to detect in the beginning of the course.
Any dog can do scent work.
Scentwork is amazing for any age dog, breed and all abilities, it gives your dog confidence and it’s a great way to build a bond with your dog as you watch and learn their body language.
It’s a fun activity for both of you and it’s very rewarding it gets them to use their brain which is mentally tiring.
Dogs love to sniff it is their strongest sense.
The odour that we start with is clove .
You will receive a starter kit at the beginning of the course.
The beginner course is for 6 weeks, it’s important that you do scent training at home in between each class and this will be set for you to follow.
