Scent Sunday Series

  • Bookable as a block of 3 workshops
  • Locations will be confirmed prior to each workshop
  • Suitable for beginners and those with more experience alike

Our Scent Detection Sunday series workshops run on the last Sunday of each month. They are held at a different location each time. These are not regular scent classes, here you will be trained to teach your own dog to search whole buildings. Our groups are really small and you will be well supported.

Mantrailing Sessions

  • Suitable for all dogs and puppies
  • No previous experience required

Did you ever play Hide and Seek? Fancy playing it with your dog?

Experience the thrill of following the trail of a missing person. Ask your dog to sniff an article they’ve left behind so that they know who to search for and then celebrate them, when they find them! Similar to Search and Rescue training, it’s a really enjoyable sport and dogs love it!

We hold regular introduction workshops through the year. There are regular sessions on a Saturday afternoon and on a Tuesday Evening.

Foundation/Puppy Sports Classes

  • 6 weekly face to face classes
  • Maximum 5 dogs in a group

Our Foundation Classes are really comprehensive and progressive. We cover all the usual basics such as recall, settling, loose lead walking and sit/stays but we also cover so much more. All our training is through games and fun exercises and you will receive written feedback each week and a recap of all the training you have done. Building confidence, self control and focus around distractions are some of our aims.

Our classes run for 45 mins, on a Saturday morning at 11am and a Monday evening at 6pm.

Additionally we have an online training membership option whereby we teach you not only to train your dog in Scent Detection, but we also teach you exercises from our Sports Classes too. Our vision for this is that you can have a well rounded dog that is both confident and competent and you can work through all those little nuances that are required for a great scent dog. Cross training in this way is both mentally and physically stimulating and you will be well supported.
