Ace K9 Super Sleuths - Introduction to Scentwork
Your dog’s nose is amazing!
Join us for an exciting, fun, introduction to scentwork and see how quickly you and your canine partner can develop your skills as an ace super sleuthing team.
This is a practical learning day with the emphasis on the nose.
Your dog will be encouraged to use their nose right from the outset and then will be introduced to a specific scent. Together you will have the opportunity to start working on a passive indication using the methodology as taught by the UKCSD (UK College of Scent Dogs).
You will be introduced to how scent works, free searches, blind searches and how to put out appropriate hides to the skill level of each team as they develop.
Indulge your dog’s love of using his/her nose and learn how to channel their natural behaviour into an activity you both can enjoy.
Dogs of any age can take part and no experience is necessary.

The Emotional Drive to Behaviour - Rethinking 'The Naughty Dog'
We are thrilled to be hosting Andrew Hale, behavioural consultant, and his inspirational talk. Plus all money raised will be donated to Forever Hounds Trust.
We humans are very judgemental of behaviour and like to define it on a continuum from good to bad. This includes how we view our dog’s behaviour, with labels used such as ‘naughty’ or ‘bad’. In turn, this leads us to think of the consequences of behaviour – in other words how can we ‘correct’ it?
In this talk, Andrew will examine the emotional considerations of dog behaviour and what our ‘naughty’ dogs are really trying to tell us. If your dog growls, barks, jumps up or even bites, you will learn a lot about the real motivations of your canine companion.
All money raised from ticket sales will be donated to The Forever Hounds Trust. Please note this is a human only event.
Monday 25th May
