For the dogs that may be shy they will learn to trust their instincts and develop a sense of confidence through this fun, self-rewarding sport.

Strengthen the bond between you and your dog. As you learn you will observe your dog, understand their behaviour and learn how to rely upon their instincts .
After the initial excitement of the searches your dogs will reach the point of elixir and get their reward whether there pleasure is treats or a pink fluffy toy the joy of finding the scent but also the feeling of zen.
Scent work will harness your dogs natural ability to detect a conditioned scent in a fun environment. They don’t have to have skills in obedience or great recall any dog of any age can take part, the aim here is to let your dog think independently and use their nose and most of all have fun doing what they love to do which is sniff!
