Service Description

Duration: once per week for 6 weeks ***PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A GROUP CLASS with multiple dogs working in the same space*** For dogs that need their own space please connect for a scent work private lesson by email bestpawdogtraining@gmail.com The sport of scent detection teaches your dog to find a specific target odour and then tell you where it is. All dogs are born knowing how to find a scent and follow it. This means that any breed of dog can play Scent Detection games! No previous training of any kind is needed to get involved in this sport and it is great for young and old dogs as well as dogs with disabilities. This course introduces your dog to a specific target odour that he learns to hunt for. Indicating that he has found it will bring a reward. We use a series of foundation games that build on each other to gradually increase the level of challenge and create a dog that searches confidently and accurately. Using these games, you and your dog can carry on after the class finishes to have endless fun!
