At UK Sniffer Dogs we have taught every breed of dog you can imagine from Chihuahuas to Great Danes to do this. Scent detection can also be particularly beneficial for:

  • Young puppies with a lot of energy to burn - as long as they've finished their vaccines you can bring them along
  • Adolescent dogs who are beginning to test the boundaries and would benefit from more focus
  • Over aroused dogs who have endless energy to burn
  • Working breeds of dogs in need of an activity to keep them busy
  • Elderly dogs who are not as mobile as they once were but who still have the drive to be active
  • Dogs recovering from surgery or injuries
  • Great for nervous dogs - using their noses is like a having safety blanket & is great confidence building
  • Dogs that cannot be exercised fully due to being in season
  • Reactive dogs that are undergoing training - scent is a great tool to help you redirect your dog's focus

What do I need to bring?

Your dog should wear a harness and flat collar for scent detection. Lead lengths of 1.5-2m are useful but not essential. You will need to bring some tasty treats chopped up into small pieces. Make sure you bring a treats pouch or wear something with a pocket you can put your dogs treats in. You may like to give your dog half it's normal breakfast allowance on the day of the workshop as we will be using food to train them. Mike can provide the scents needed for each class, but you can also buy the full scent kits from 

My dog is reactive, can I still come?

Yes! This is the ideal place to bring a reactive dog. I normally have several reactive dogs in classes and most people would never notice. Using their noses is a great distraction. Please give Mike a call before you bring a reactive dog along so that we can put a plan in place to keep your dog calm and settled. 

If you have any questions please do get in touch for a chat. We very much hope to see you and your dog at a workshop soon!!
