Your Dog
  • Your dog does not need to have any previous scent work experience.  However it’s fine if your dog does have experience - our methods will not interfere with what they already know. 
  • Please feed your dog out of a RED KONG (must be red) at least once a day for at least one week before attending the course, all will be revealed when you arrive!
  • Please note, our instructor courses are aimed at you the instructor not your dog or your dog’s performance on the day. The emphasis is on giving you the skills and knowledge to confidently deliver UK Sniffer Dogs classes, workshops and trials.

I attended the Bronze instructors course last week and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I've been on a fair few training courses over the years but honestly I came away from this course armed with everything i could possibly need to start my classes in scentwork. Because we were given a beautifully printed book with pretty much most of the info we needed to learn - the science behind it, plus the breakdown of each class/workshop to run I was able to concentrate on the training rather than frantically writing notes to look at later. The instructors were all fantastic, so helpful and inspiring - and not only was it a supportive environment to learn in but we had great fun too. Top notch!

I really enjoyed the two day bronze instructors course and especially on the way it has been designed to teach us on how to build our individual business. I would always recommend this teaching to anyone who wishes to further themselves in our dog training industry, As for the host and co-founder of UK Snifferdogs, the training was so clear and well organised from Jamie and at all times he made you feel special. I now feel that im part of a successful team going forward.

This course was among the top courses I have done. It was structured beautifully. Jamie is a fantastic tutor who has a very personable yet professional attitude. His compassion for the dogs welfare also shone through. The resources that came with the course are by far the best I've seen. This course really gave me the confidence to go out and immediately start my sniffer dog instructing. I am on the verge of booking my first stadium venue!!

Thanks so much Jamie, and everyone who attended, you will definitely be seeing me in the future 👌

I have just attended the Bronze Level Instructor Course and can highly recommend! Jamie is a fab presenter and I have really come away with confidence that I will be able to do Sniffer Dog UK proud in running some courses. The content was a perfect mix of theory, practical and discussion. The best thing about the course, for me, was being given thorough lesson plans on how to deliver the course just as Jamie has developed it, his passion for the course and what it can help dog owners achieve is clear to see. Can't wait to get started! :)

I have just taken the Bronze level Instructor Course and was very impressed with the way the 2 days were run. The information given was so clear and utmost care was taken to ensure the dogs helping their handlers were the first priority. We have come away with everything we need to run our own UK Sniffer Dogs Workshops or Classes which I will be doing in the nor too distant future. Thanks for all concerned for a very professionally run course.

The structure of the course is perfect, a short time in the class room and the hands on practical learning with your dogs.

What an action packed and fun course! Jamie is a natural teacher and his and Gemma's enthusiasm is infectious. There was absolutely no filler, straight to the point, very hands on with practical skills being developed. The guide and all the materials provided are really useful. I had dabbled in scent work before and seeing the benefits I've had with this in reactive dogs, I really wanted to further my skills. This has given me the confidence and format to do my own workshops and I can direct owners of reactive dogs to the online version of this course. Everyone's a winner! Thank you so much, I'll be back to do the silver course without doubt.

I have just returned from the Bronze UK Sniffer Dogs Coach 2 day course. I want to do it all over again! It was fab. The attention to detail, the amount of information given, the style of teaching, everything about the 2days was fabulous and such fun. I am feeling really inspired and motivated to start my own classes/workshops in Devon and look forward to doing the Silver course next year.

Super course! I have attended a lot of different courses on scent work and feel this is by far the most informative one yet! Jamie’s passion for scent is very clear and him and Gemma have put a lot of time and effort into every section of this course. The booklet you get given is packed full of information and having this to refer to is brilliant. Thanks for a great couple of days!
