Talking Dogs Scentwork was developed by Pam Mackinnon following her time as a drug detector dog handler with HM Customs & Excise. This form of scentwork is about teaching the dog to find a specific scent, not a specific item. The scent is the key.
We are delighted to be hosting Helen Greenley BSc, PGDip CABC again for these workshops after having such great feedback from previous attendees.
Level 2 builds on level 1 and is open to anyone who has completed a Scent 1 course. This workshop concentrates on handling skills, introducing directed searches and search patterns. These allow teams to increase the challenge of the searches, including changes of height, duration of the search and multiple or zero finds. Building on the foundation searches, this day will push the boundaries and challenge your team. If your dog will find it difficult to work or settle in a room with other dogs please get in touch so we can discuss your needs before booking.
We are running a new series of the Talking Dogs Scentwork Courses on the following dates:
Scent 2 – 2 August, £85 handler, £45 spectator, 12 handler places
