The Fun Stuff
Having fun and enjoying your dog
The more we learn about our dogs the more we realise how much they can do.
Have you got yourself a real smarty pants?
Why not try one of our more fun activities?
All of these sessions are carefully designed to allow both you and your dog to get the most benefit and enjoyment from training.
Introduction to Nose Work – train your very own sniffer dog! Inspired by working detection dogs, Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. Dogs ‘see’ the world through their noses; for a dog nothing else compares to using their nose, as it is what they are hard-wired to do. This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise.
Intermediate Nose Work – progress on to more challenging exercises, learning to incorporate nose work into your everyday life. How often have you wanted your dog to find your keys or phone for you?
