Canine nose work

Discover the new fun search and scenting sport  

Inspired by working Detection (Sniffer) dogs, it harnesses a dog’s natural ability to use his nose to find hidden scents. Dogs just love it. 

Dogs start to search for treats or a toy. This builds your dog's love for the search, hunting drive, and search skills. It's also very easy for you as a handler - no previous training experience required.  You can choose to continue searching for treats/toys indefinitely - It will always be a fantastic activity your dog will love. Or you can opt to take the ‘game’ further - you can transition to searching for a specific target odour.

Having a new puppy can be an overwhelming experience. 

From constantly nipping the children or chewing all your belongings to barking at strangers and squirming when you want to handle your puppy - it can get a bit much. 

Let me help you! I can show you how to handle the most common puppy 'issues' and how to work with your puppy to prevent problems from occurring later on. Find out how dogs learn and be empowered to continue training even after your puppy has graduated from class.  

This is the most crucial time in your puppy's development and just one bad experience can affect your puppy for life. Learn how to make sure your puppy's experiences are positive ones so your puppy grows up to be a relaxed and confident dog.

Behaviour advice 

On-lead greetings

A lot of dog owners think that their dog should like — and want to greet — every dog she meets when out on a walk. In reality, many dogs don’t really want to meet (or shouldn’t meet other dogs). My advice is that dogs generally shouldn’t be meeting on lead.

Potential risks and behaviour issues associated with on-lead greetings include that you don’t know the other dog, it can reinforce pulling on lead, leads can get tangled causing reactivity, and the way dogs approach each other when on lead is often not polite in terms of dog-etiquette and can lead to altercations.
