Dogs love to sniff and smell their way through the day. Why not harness this skill rather than fighting against it? More than 1600 owners with dogs of all breeds, abilities and ages have attended our foundation workshops. In 2015, we delivered 95 workshops, in 2016 146 and we have 145 workshops and events in the diary for 2017 to be delivered all over Britain. Safe to say we are the biggest, most popular scentwork organisation in the UK. We deliver the highest quality scentwork training at safe, inclusive and supportive events. They are taught by experienced trainers who have actively been honing their scentwork skills for two years before being invited to join the Talking Dogs Scentwork® team. We teach so much more than just technique; your dog’s emotional, mental and physical welfare is always paramount.

Talking Dogs Scentwork® offers a great way to have fun with your dog and tire him or her out quickly. This can be done at different levels, from letting them work alone while you watch from the sofa to you both being actively involved covering larger, more challenging areas. For those who get hooked on this fascinating activity, I have developed a 6-stage progression leading to accreditation as a Talking Dogs Scentwork® Handler, and then the opportunity to becoming an accredited Talking Dogs Scentwork® Trainer.  Please have a sniff around the website to find out all the  information you need about how to get started through our workshops, events and products.

Your dog will thank you for it!
