Dogs love to sniff and smell their way through the day. We will help you harness this skill rather than fighting against it. 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 at our foundation workshops, 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 great 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 leading to accreditation as a Talking Dogs Scentwork® Handler, and then participation in our advanced workshops. We also have some openings to become an accredited Talking Dogs Scentwork® Trainer.  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 workshops, events, reward card and products.


Your dog will thank you for it!
