Developing the freeze indication; working with smaller scent samples; adding new scents; working with distractions; working in different locations; working on larger search areas; searching people and vehicles; searching rooms and outdoor spaces; inaccessible hides.

Teams tend to progress at different rates, so the classes will be tailored to each team, breaking things down and adding extra challenge for those that want it.

Suitable for beginners.

In these classes you and your dog will learn how to search different areas, both inside and outside. You will learn about basic theory of scent work, the amazing power of the canine nose, and why dogs sometimes can't find the treat right in front of them!

These classes will prepare you for Scentwork UK competitions, if you wish to compete.

Scentwork is amazing for building confidence in nervous and fearful dogs and also in calming over-excited dogs. It is also a great low-impact activity that can be adapted to dogs with very limited mobility. Most of all it's fun!

Teams tend to progress at different rates, so the classes will be tailored to each dog/human team, breaking things down and adding extra challenge for those that want it.

Any questions, please ask, I'm very happy to talk through whether these workshops would be suitable for you and your dog - I enjoy adapting exercises to dogs with unusual needs :)

The North End Comunity Centre is in Stafford, not far from Jct 14 of the M6
