Scent Detection

Involves teaching your dog to search for a specific odour, (clove, gun oil, truffle oil and catnip) ,Once your dog understands the game is to locate and identify these target odours. we begin to hide articles in different locations. The more advanced your dog gets, the more challenging we make the hides.

We are SWUK trainer, Judges and trails managers so regularly hold SWUK trials for you to test your skills in. These trials are based on detection-style nose work practiced daily by customs & excise dogs,. That are tested against the clock and environment.

The Real Dog Yoga (not as hippy as you think)

Real Dog Yoga is a programme of training. It ultimately involves teaching dogs to express and hold specific body postures, expressions and actions that stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and help them to become or remain calm. The programme has designed an environment for learning which is called option training. We train yoga using this method where dogs have specific areas and communication signals they can use to opt out at any point. Regular breaks are taken following a protocol to ensure that emotional stressors such as frustration do not complicate learning patterns. Classes are ran in 6-week blocks, one to ones and occasionally fun trial drop-in sessions. Sign up for our newsletter for the next enrolment date.

Why not book a yoga party with your friends, In your home/garden where I can show you the principles of promoting calm controlled behaviour patterns focusing on the bond between you and your dog : Up to 6 dogs, £150.
