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 starting the course.
  • Please note, our instructor courses are aimed at you the instructor not your dog or your dog’s performance. The emphasis is on giving you the skills and knowledge to confidently deliver UK Sniffer Dogs classes, workshops and trials. 

Minimum requirements
Our courses are designed for dog trainers looking to expand their knowledge and/or to introduce scent work to their clients. Attendees should have qualifications with the APDT, IMDT, SCS, VSA, PPG, PPN, ICAN, ISCP or scent qualifications such as WSDA Instructor, Scentwork UK, UKCSD or any other form of Positive Reinforcement Dog Training Association.  We are aware there are many amazing, knowledgeable dog trainers within this industry without any formal qualifications. We would hate to miss the opportunity of having awesome trainers onboard with our programmes because of this. 

If you do not have any formal qualifications from the list above and would still like to participate in our courses we would like to invite you to make an application.  Please request an application form here

Having already completed bronze and silver in scent detection, I decided to branch out and try tracking. My male Border Collie is always nose down so I thought this would be perfect for him and clients dogs alike. I was not wrong! Jamie was not only informative, patient and knowledgeable but taught with a sense of humour which made everyone feel at ease. Not only do you get to learn the theory side of tracking and the science behind the dogs awesome olfactory system, there was enough practical to help you really understand how you were going to teach it. It was good that you got to see it from the ‘learners’ point of view and the ‘instructors’ too.
Great course and throughly recommend you do it! If you can do the in person course all the better too, as you get to troubleshoot whilst you’re there.
