Scent/Search/Find It! – Online 6 Week Workshop
14 December 2020 @ 11:45 am – 1:15 pm£127
Does your dog have a nose? We hope so!!! Want to put it to work for you…not against you? We have some great games you can play with your dog and they get his nose to work in a very productive way! Tap into your dog’s natural desire to find things and grow an amazing relationship with your dog through scent games.
Scent games are one of our favourite topics, we teach our agility dogs, pet dogs, gundogs, NBN dogs…every dog really! Why? It’s fun and you are employing your dog appropriately! You can play anywhere, in your living room, in your garden, on a walk – it’s so very versatile.
Equipment needed is minimal, we can show you how to make your own scent kit or help you to purchase one! Searching releases dopamine, a happy hormone for your dogs! Finding things works your dog’s mind AND body = RESULT!
If you have done some search work before…we have some new and cool games for you to play and will give you some more interesting searches 🙂
What do you need to take this course?
Facebook to view lessons and feedback and a Zoom account (an account can be setup for free)
A way to video if you want to show us (this is optional: phone/camera/mobile device & tripod or willing helper)
A few minutes a day…it really doesn’t take long in your own time!
