Talking Dogs Scentwork Level 3
9 April 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm£85
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 3 is the skill builder level and will build on the use of search patterns, the searches become longer, thresholds smaller. Hiding scented articles inside items inside other items requires your team to work more accurately and efficiently. New on lead searches such as baggage and postal sacks may also be introduced. This workshop is open to any handlers who have completed Scent 2 previously. 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 Scent 5 course on 2nd July 2017 and offer a 10% discount if you book both Scent 3 & 5 together.
