Teaching scentwork to pet dogs and their people requires a very specific skill set. Unlike Police or Forces handlers, your clients come with a variety of breed types. None of which have been specially selected to be scentwork dogs. But all of whom can give the professionals a run for their money given half a chance! Your job is to bring out the detector dog in every pet dog that walks into your training hall.
Never before have I shared the secrets that have made Talking Dogs Scentwork® trainers the best in the business. But I share your passion. I want every dog to be a detector dog and you want to train them. Together we can help each other reach our goals.
By way of an 8 week training program that, when you are ready, you can use with your clients, I share the experience and skills I’ve learned while delivering hundreds of workshops to thousands of people.
You’ll find everything you need to learn how to be a supportive, knowledgable scentwork trainer plus the tools to deliver a great scentwork course to your clients. Each lesson includes Lesson Aims, Learning Goals for dog and handler, toolkit lists for trainer and client, plus a full set of client handouts.
This course is for dog trainers who want to add scentwork to their skill set in order to give all their clients an effective, efficient, supportive introduction to scentwork.
