Scent work/sniffer training

Scent Detection Training


Scent detection training has long been used widely across the world, for working and operational services.

Our dogs have been used to search for drugs, bombs, firearms, cash, contraband, missing people & human remains. 

In recent years, a larger number of dogs are being used for assistance purposes such as medical alert (diabeties), medical detection (detecting cancer cells in humans….. WOW!) and as support dogs detecting emotional changes in their owners.  

As pet dog owners, we can tap into the huge capabilities of our dogs noses in easy scentwork exercises that we can do both at home and outside.

Moreover, scentwork is HUGELY enjoyable for our dogs, not only using a lot of brain power but also improves behaviour. Take a look at our Elite Scentwork website

Did you know that around 10 minutes of mental stimulation for our dogs is as good as an hour’s walk?

Our head trainer is an accredited Bronze and Silver level Instructor with UK Sniffer Dogs and has completed additional scent courses with Absolute Dogs and the School of Canine Science. Scentwork has a phenomenal benefit to dogs and activates the release of dopamine which is invaluable in the wellbeing of all dogs. Elite Scentwork is lucky to have a retired Police dog handler as our assistant trainer who brings a huge wealth of knowledge from active frontline police duties.
