PURE SPORTS

This class is a great way to build confidence, engagement and focus in challenging and distracting environments.

We will explore various training exercises that will all help build reliable recalls, loose lead walking, stays amidst distractions and so much more.

Utilising a variety of exercises from several different canine sports, including; rally, gundog training, hoopers and scent work, this class will really challenge your dog both mentally and physically in a really fun way!

Each course is 6 weeks long with the option of returning for multiple blocks. I anticipate this course to be very popular. To be eligable to join, you must complete the Pure Foundations course, either online or face-to-face, or have attended a regular training class with me.

Please get in touch if you are unsure of your suitability. Each class will be held outside on grass or in our winter venue.

MANTRAILING

Do you remember playing hide and seek when you were a kid? 

Do you fancy playing it with your dog?

We all have a unique odour, made up of lots of things, including our deodorant, soap, topical creams and sweat.

Every minute we lose or cast 40,000 skin cells. These tiny flakes of skin fall to the ground like confetti and leave a smelly trail for your dog to follow with their incredible nose.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be super fit. Each training trail is usually only around 300 metres long.

You work as a team with your dog to learn and practice problem solving skills such as crossing varied terrain, turns and road crossings. Your dog can learn to sniff something that the 'missing' person has touched or worn and be able to search for their unique trail.

The best thing about mantrailing is that it is so much fun! It can be used to channel excess energy into a constructive skill, thereby increasing focus and concentration duration.

Suitable for all dogs, regardless of breed, age or type; it is a great way to spend time with your dog and enhance your relationship.

All dogs work on a longline, individually, making it perfect for dogs with poor recall and reactive dogs.

SCENT DETECTION

Did you know you can now do detection training with your dog for fun?

Detection training (or scent work) is a dog sport teaching dogs to find a specific odour. Scent work harnesses a dog's natural ability to hunt - all dogs have this ability, we are just harnessing their amazing sense of smell and turning it into a super fun activity to do with our dogs!

One of the many amazing things about this type of training is that it is fully accessible to all people and dogs, regardless of age, breed or disability. Dogs are always worked one at a time which means even dogs with confidence and reactivity issues can take part.

Scent work also relies heavily on teamwork and it's important to have a line of communication between you and your dog at all times. Dogs are typically worked on a lead meaning that even dogs with poor recall can take part.

Scent work is also a low impact sport which, unlike some dog sports, means that there is less pressure and stress on your dogs joints allowing puppies, older dogs and those who need more careful exercise management to still join in on the fun.
