Scentwork UK Recognised Trainers


Regular Classes

We offer regular fortnightly training classes from beginners through to advanced.

Your training journey starts with Level 1. 

The level 1 course follows the criteria as set by Scentwork UK. The purpose of the course is to develop abilities in both the dog and handler in preparation for a Scentwork UK Level 1 Trial.  Although the trials are an optional test and not a compulsory requirement.

Participants will learn odour recognition and be able to search a variety of items that are used in the four elements of Scentwork UK Trials.


We like to start a group of new starters off together, these groups fill up fast so we hold a waiting list. if you would like to be added to our list please send us an email or alternatively use the contact form and we will be in touch when the new group start.

1-2-1 Training

If you are unable to make our regular classes or maybe group classes are not for you/your dog or you just want to brush up on your scentwork skills we also offer 1-2-1 training.

One person with one dog would usually be an hour session, one person with multiple dogs or two people with two plus dogs would be a two hour session.

Please contact us for more details.

Host your own

We have provided Introduction to Scentwork workshops for dog training clubs, groups of friends and even a doggy birthday party!  If you have a suitable venue and a group that are interested in giving scentwork a go contact us for more details.

The workshops will give a brief idea of what we do and we aim to cover the four areas used in Scentwork UK trials.

As a guideline, a suitable venue would require: An indoor area with tables and chairs, outdoor space for external searches and a safe parking area. Ideally with utilities such as toilets & refreshments.
