Scentwork Taster Workshop (2 Hours) - Hale AFTERNOON
Scent work is when a dog uses its sense of smell to identify and locate a scent which it has been trained to detect. Dogs have a highly sensitive nose, vastly superior to our own. Scentwork is a natural behaviour for a dog and essential in hunting and finding prey.

About the Event
Scentwork UK has been set up to promote and develop scent work as a dog sport and training activity throughout the country.
- It is suitable for all breeds and ages, puppies and dogs with injuries or disabilities – scentwork is a non-injurious sport and every dogs and owner is welcome to enrol.
As a training activity, scentwork is fun, very rewarding and at the same time mentally tiring for your dog. It will improve the relationship between you and your dog and is a great confidence builder especially for the shy dog. You can participate whether it is just for fun or go on and enter trials and gain qualifications.
