This training workshop is a great introduction to teach your dog to find cheese or a toy by using its nose.
It is common belief that dogs need to be walked for hours every day to tire them out – especially the more active breeds. Whilst physical exercise is important to keep a dog fit and healthy, sometimes it is not appropriate to walk a dog for many reasons: injury, a bitch may be in season, you may be injured or unwell a dog may need a decompression day if they have been over-aroused or have had a negative experience.
It is equally as important to ensure your dog exercises its brain as well as it’s body. This can be done through scent training
Scent training is a really great way to mentally stimulate your dog. Ten minutes of scent work is equivalent to a walk for 1 hour. It is an ideal way to work your dog’s brain. All breeds of dog are capable of doing scent work.
All dogs must be friendly with dogs and people.
What your dog will learn:
- The find cue
- How to find a toy or cheese
- Basic scent patterns
- How to work more independently from handler
We will teach you how to help your dog to understand the “find” cue with a three step process.
We will then progress the training teaching you how to teach your dog to learn to use their nose to find either a toy or cheese that is hidden in our training centre.
This exercise can be transferred to many different locations in your home.
On completion of this workshop you can then progress your dog’s scent training on with our level 2 workshop.
Pre-booking is essential through our online booking system.
