WE ARE A UK SNIFFER DOGS BRONZE SCENT DETECTION INSTRUCTOR
The Power of the Nose
Did you know that both humans and dogs have a olfactory bulb at the front of our brains which processes scent? Did you also know that whilst humans have 5 million olfactory receptors, our dogs have 300 MILLION!! A dog's nose is so sensitive that they could smell half a teaspoon of sugar in a olympic-sized swimming pool! - pretty neat huh?
Both scent detection workshops will be limited to six dogs. Reactive dogs are welcome to attend but please contact me before booking
Bronze Series 1 and 2
All handlers and their dogs will firstly attend our Bronze Series 1 workshop; where you will learn about the foundations of how your dog's nose works, scent identification using kongs, indications and searches using pipes and chairs. Our Bronze Series 2 workshop is how you can progress and learn about vehicle searches, laying hides, bag searches and novel environments. You may only attend series 2 if you have completed a series 1 workshop. All handlers will be given a few items on our series 1 workshop to help get you started at home; a slider tin, aluminium pot, vials and kong pieces
Bronze Series 1 Scent Detection
Where: April's Farm, Upper Enham, Andover
Next Workshop Dates: November 20th & December 4th
This is a two-part workshop consisting of 4 hours long in total. Handlers will learn how to teach their dog to recognise a scent, search and indicate to that scent. Dogs must be okay to be left in the car to have a break; scentwork is extremely exhausting and the dogs will need rest periods. This workshop is suitable for dogs of all ages; as well as reactive dogs and those who lack confidence. Guardians will need to bring with them a small or medium RED kong. Dogs are then eligible to attend a series 2 workshop for progression.
All attendees will receive a certificate, pdf handouts of the exercises done and some scentwork items to get you started. But thats not all. You will gain access to our online training community. All our terms and conditions can be found via the booking button above.
