Pet Dog Training, Rally Obedience, Scentwork, Hoopers & Agility


Any form of activity that engages your dog’s primary sense (his or her nose) is an excellent form of enrichment.

Scentwork has so many benefits…

  1. Increases mental enrichment for dogs of all ages, from puppies to older dogs with lower energy and physical capability.
  2. Can help improve your dog’s self-control by engaging his/her brain in an entirely natural way.
  3. Can increases your dog’s confidence so it is especially good for shy, anxious dogs.
  4. Can help build trust with a newly acquired rescue dog.
  5. Builds resilience and optimism in a sensitive dog.
  6. Helps develop a strong connection and relationship between handler/dog as you are working as a team.

So, whether you are looking for a competition sport or an activity that is fun for both you and your dog scentwork fits the bill.
