Exercises in the courses include building freeze indication on target scent (KONG), completing searches on pots, pipes, and boxes, chairs, bags, vehicles and novel search environments such as exterior walls, fences and random new areas as well as mock trials.
We run our courses at 2 venues. Our training field near Carleen and Carbis Bay Scout Hut - please check when booking which venue your chosen course is being held at.
What an excellent class, I thoroughly recommend it.
Vicki is a knowledgeable and informative trainer and led the class well. I did not know a great deal about scent work and she gave a good balance of practical trials with theory and knowledge. This is a great course for beginners.
My dog, Kobe, loved it, I was astonished at the size of the Kong he detected and loved seeing his perseverance and concentration. It was a great way for us to strengthen our bond together. Joanne and Kobe
This fun beginners scent course is highly recommended for all breeds! Me and Betsy (a beagle ) really enjoyed it and i was constantly amazed at " the power of the dog's nose" in learning the techniques
Vicky was a knowledgable,kind and considerate trainer to both owners and dogs taking partStephen Nicholson
These classes are great. Eadie is 8 months and we have a brilliant time together. Honestly, I think I have learned more than she has and she astounds me every week! After just 3 sessions, we are now at the point where I'm hiding her Kong on walks and asking her to find it. She never fails!
I was worried that being young and easily distracted, Eadie wouldn't have the attention span but before the course even started Vicki was providing me feedback and support. And she seems to adapt each exercise for each individual dog's needs.
I would 100% recommend this course for people wanting a fun activity for their dogs.Sarah and Eadie
