What is Scentwork?
Dogs LOVE sniffing which is why Scentwork is becoming more and more popular. It has a calming and deeply satisfying effect for dogs and owners often report that their dogs are content and relaxed in a way they have rarely seen before after taking part. Nosework for dogs is fully accessible to all dogs, regardless of age, breed or disability. This includes dogs with confidence and reactivity issues. Basically if your dog has a nose you can have a go! We guarantee you will be amazed by their skill!
I am a Scentwork UK Instructor and a UK Sniffer Dogs Instructor and our workshops and classes run in line with their individual systems. We hold Smartstart Scentwork classes and workshops in Oswestry, Shropshire, at Llanyblodwell Memorial Hall. We also plan to run UK Sniffer Dogs Trials from the winter of 2020.
To book onto any of our classes or workshops please head over to the Booking & Registration page.

You don't have to have a working breed to take part in scentwork classes and workshops. Check out the video below of our little Cairn Terrier, Lizzie, who was just starting out on her scentwork journey when the video was recorded. Scentwork is open to anyone and everyone and the dogs LOVE it!
