We are pleased to be approved trainers for Scentwork UK. not only is James and Hannah approved trainers, but Ariel, Hannah’s daughter is also an approved trainer. Dog training is definitely a family thing!
Scent work UK are leading the way in promoting and developing scent work as a training activity and a dog sport and we are pleased to provide scentwork courses.
Scent work UK trials are based on detection-style nose work practiced daily by customs & excise dogs, bomb explosive dogs, search & rescue dogs and medical detection dogs. This is a great opportunity to have some fun with your dog and try something different. This sport is open to any breed of dog.
We will show you how to train your dog to search boxes and bags, search rooms, search the exterior of vehicles and how to search items outside around distractions. We use 3 specific scents as you progress through the grading schemes and will be taught how to get them to indicate either with an active indication or a passive indication.
The course runs every week and the classes last for an hour and is run out of Benenden Village Hall on a friday evening. If you would be interested in taking part in this course then please contact us.
Our courses run from March through to November.
