Scent Work Classes

Whatever experience of scent work you and your dog has, we have a class for you

From taster workshops or beginners, improvers and advanced classes, whatever experience of scent work you and your dog has we have a class or workshop for you running throughout the year.

You and your dog will engage in scent work exercises, which will include a variety of items and location searches. Your dog’s natural scenting ability will be put to work and trained to search, locate and indicate on a specific scent. We work at a pace and standard you and your dog are happy with. There are limited spaces on the class and workshops entries so everyone gets a chance to fully enjoy the experience.

You can participate in classes just for fun with your dog or you can go on further to enter in Scentwork UK progression levels.

Mandy is a Qualified Scentwork UK Trainer, Trial Manager and Judge covering Birmingham South & Solihull and coaching you and your dog through the steps ready to enter your first trials and/or participate in Sniff-away events at different locations

We’ve just started scent work classes with Mandy and she made both my reactive rescue dog and me feel very welcome and safe in class. My little chap is not naughty he’s just frightened and taking him to new places where there are other dogs is a big deal. Mandy recognised this from the start and gave us solutions to build our confidence together. We both love scent work and look forward to every session. I would highly recommend Mandy’s classes especially if you have a tricky dog, no judgement, just lots of positive feedback.
Thanks Mandy

Boo Boo and I started our scent work journey with Mandy few months ago. We love the classes she runs – they are fun and practical. We also had a 1-2-1 session with her prior to our Level 1 trial. Up until the day of our trial Mandy has been very supportive and reassuring, always responds to messages with lots of useful and practical tips. We are glad to have Mandy to guide us in this fun sport. Would highly recommend both Mandy and anyone considering doing scent work.

Had a brilliant time at the scent training workshop. Mandy was very informative, patient, and positive. I will definitely be looking to book further scent training classes!
