IMPORTANT - ALL DOGS MUST BE COMFORTABLE RESTING IN YOUR CAR BETWEEN THEIR SEARCHES. 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 workshop is designed to introduce you and your dog to the world of scent detection and harness that natural ability. Dogs are taught to identify and search for a specific odour - we use Gun Oil which is the most common in scent detection. It's a great way for you and your dog to work together as a team, build your bond and confidence. It uses the dog's brain as they need to concentrate and focus on the task. For most dogs this mental stimulation can be more tiring than physical exercise alone. After you've completed an Introduction Workshop you can then do Beginner's Scent Searches. We hold them on a regular basis in various locations. When you feel confident to progress, you can do one of our regular Scent Searches. We also run Scent Skills Classes where you can practice different techniques such as line handling, indication or motivation. Also open to you is competition trials with the National Nosework Association. We regularly hold Trials Odour Recognition Tests at all levels. www.thenationalnoseworkassociation.co.uk
