Dogs love to sniff and smell their way through the day. We will help you harness this skill rather than fighting against it. Founded in 2011, the first national scentwork organisation in  Great Britain, we specialise in teaching pet dogs and their people how to have fun with scentwork. With more than 2000 teams having learned new skills, new understanding and new respect for what our pet dogs can do, we continue to evolve, innovate and deliver the highest quality scentwork training. We understand the needs of pet dogs and have developed a highly successful training system that gives great results for ALL dogs and abilities, not just those specialised individuals that have been selected for this specific task. We teach so much more than just scentwork technique; you dog’s emotional, mental and physical welfare is at the core of everything we offer. Adapting to the needs of every individual team enhances the results we get while integrating seamlessly with best practice professional protocols.  

Talking Dogs Scentwork® offers a non-competitive way to have fun with your dog and tire him or her out quickly. This can be done at different levels, from letting them work alone while you watch from the sofa to you both being actively involved covering larger, more challenging areas. For those who get hooked on this fascinating activity, I have developed a 6-stage system of in-person workshops plus  twelve online courses  We will take your relationship with your dog to new levels, helping him or her to engage with you, far beyond scentwork, and to being happily tired at the end of the day.

Please have a sniff around the website to find out all the information you need to get started and to make the most of your scentwork journey through our online courses, workshops, events and products.

Your dog will thank you for it!
