Medical Detection Dogs - Super Sniffers!
We are thrilled to be hosting an online talk by Medical Detection Dogs.
Medical Detection Dogs are super sniffers, using their incredible sense of smell to save lives each and every day.
Bio detection dogs use their nose to find illnesses such as cancer, Parkinson's disease, malaria, and now even Covid-19! These wonderful dogs are working to diagnose disease much earlier, through less invasive and less expensive methods.
Medical Alert Assistance Dogs support individuals with complex health conditions who have limited awareness of an impending life-threatening medical event. Using their amazing sense of smell, these dogs can be trained to identify minute odour changes emitted prior to an emergency and alert the person to take preventative action.
Join Medical Detection Dogs as they introduce you to their work and tell you more about their Covid-19 project.
Tickets are £5 per screen, 100% of the £5 ticket fee will go to Medical Detection Dogs.
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.
