Welcome to Scentwork Training

What is Scentwork training?

Scentwork is when a dog uses its sense of smell to identify and locate ascent which it has been trained to detect.
Dogs have a highly sensitive nose, vastly superior to our own. Scentwork is a natural behaviour for dogs and it has been put to many uses for example in police work, search and rescue and hunting. As a dog sport/activity, Scentwork has emerged from detection style nose work such
as practiced by custom and excise, explosives detection, search and rescue and medical detection dogs.
Scentwork is a low impact activity suitable for ALL breeds and ages as well as dogs with disabilities.
As a training activity, scentwork is fun, very rewarding and at the same mentally tiring for the dog. It will improve the relationship time between you and your dog as you work as a team and is good for building confidence especially for shy and/or nervous dogs.

Help your dog learn to use it's most powerful asset even more effectively

As a training activity, scentwork is fun, rewarding and at the same time mentally tiring for your dog. It will improve the relationship between you and your dog and it is a good confidence builder especially for the shy or worried dog. 

You can participate whether it is just for fun, or go on and enter trials. We train to Scentwork UK specifications with the intention that if you wish to enter Scentwork trials you will be well prepared. Scentwork UK promotes and develops scentwork both as a training activity and as a dog sport with regular trials nationally. The scent we train the dog to recognise at level 1-2 is Cloves, for levels 3-5 we train the dogs to recognise both Cloves and Gun Oil.
