In the Scent Work method that I teach in this Course, your dog will not be searching for food treats. Instead, your dog will be introduced to your chosen target odour right from the start, and rewarded with food and/or toys for locating the source of that odour.

This course takes you through all the steps of training your dog to recognise and locate a target odour, so you can get started in the Canine Sport of Scent Work or Nose Work.
The course contains 50 videos with over 3.5. hours of instruction.
The course includes:
-what equipment you will need
-motivating your dog
-using a reward signal – clicker or word
-how odour moves
-reading your dog’s body language
-four different ways to introduce your dog to your target odour
-teaching your dog to “Indicate” – point their nose at the odour source and freeze, with an optional sit or lie down
-teaching your dog to find the “Hot” item using a variety of games and training exercises
-starting actual searches – Container, Interiors, Exteriors and Vehicles
