IMPORTANT - DOGS MUST BE HAPPY TO STAY IN THE CAR AS THE MAJORITY OF EXERCISES ARE DONE ONE AT A TIME This new and exciting class introduces you and your dog into the exciting world of pet dog scent detection. This course is suitable for any dog new to scent detection or those very early in their scent detection journey looking for extra learning and support from experienced trainers. We all know that dogs have the most amazing noses and sense of smell. Sniffing is what they do naturally and they are brilliant at it. This course is designed to introduce you and your dog to the world of scent detection and harness their natural ability. Dogs are taught to identify and search for a specific odour - we use Gun Oil which is the most common odour in pet dog scent detection. It's a great way for you and your dog to work together as a team, so building your bond whilst increasing your dog's confidence. It uses your dog's brain as they need to concentrate and focus on the task and it is well accepted that mental stimulation can be more tiring than physical exercise alone. The course is taken by College of Scent Dogs City and Guilds qualified instructors and highly experienced and knowledgeable dog trainers. This course will have the support of Sandra Raw owner of Worcester Dogs, a fully qualified scent instructor, Clinical Animal Behaviourist and a full member of the APBC. After you have completed this course we offer weekly beginner scent skills classes to enhance the skills you have learnt with progression to environmental searches in our various locations across Worcestershire - farms, schools, rugby stadiums, rural life centre, coaches and many more. It is also a very social and supportive atmosphere where you and your dog can make new friends both canine and human!. We also support and run NNA trails, for more information see link below:- www.thenationalnoseworkassociation.co.uk
