Service Description

For dogs from 6 months. These sessions are for all those who want to understand their dog’s language so you can communicate with them in their world of scent. A dog’s nose has up to 300 million olfactory receptors compared to a human nose of 5 million! All animals use their nose to orientate themselves in an environment, to create social bonds as well as to avoid predators Dogs rely heavily on their sense of smell to function in the world around them. All dogs will enjoy scent detection and search dogs are happy dogs! When your dog is involved in scentwork you will be amazed to see the focus and intensity they show. Your dog has the opportunity to use their natural skills and behaviours that he was born with. This workshop will introduce you and your dog to scent imprinting and search tasks that will help to channel these natural desires. Your dog will enjoy working alongside you, using all their instinctive behaviours and skills joined with their senses. All the search and scent tasks can be translated in your daily life with your dog and, for those who wish to progress, further scent detection workshops will be offered. Remember a dog’s nose is 100 million times ore sensitive than a human nose at detecting odours. These workshops are jointly run by Sandra Raw and Natalie Dolton from Paw Behaviour. Natalie is a registered trainer with IABTC, a Kennel Club judge up to Gold level and a Scent Detection instructor for the UK College of Scent Dogs. A SCENT DETECTION KIT IS AVAILABLE TO BUY AT EACH WORKSHOP FOR £20 (CASH ONLY) THAT WE ADVISE YOU PURCHASE. There will be an hour lunch break, please bring a packed lunch.
