DOGS 'LOVE' USING THEIR NOSES.


Dogs see their world mainly by detecting all the various scents around them, much like we use our eyes.


Tap into this powerful and natural ability and have fun enjoying scentwork activities together. Your dog will love you for it!


For fun or for those who get bitten by the Scentwork bug, there are varous organisations who run workshops and Trials. We can advise you further on these.


Our emphasis is on fun in a relaxed environment of your own home.

'TASK TRAINING':  FUN TRAINING TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO BE YOUR CANINE HOME HELP!


Teach your dog to help you around the home, provide them with a 'job' to do, let them use their brains, help build that bond between you.


Task Training is a challenging and great way to train your dog, this can be in addition to other training that you may be carrying out with your dog.


Does your dog tear up the post? Teach them to fetch it to you instead!

Does your dog run off with shoes, clothing etc? Teach them to fetch them instead.

Teach your dog to pick up items that you have dropped etc.


These are not 'tricks' but useful behaviours that you never know, one day you may need!
