sniffing school

Scentwork is addictive!

Sniff, sniff, sniff…

If we asked you what your dog loved to do most, the chances are sniffing would be pretty high on the list.

But us puny humans just can’t appreciate the amazing smells our dogs pick up on, and we don’t understand why they get so distracted!


Learn to work as a team with your dog searching for a target scent, and getting to eat the food or play with the toy at the end of the game.

Rather than fighting against their natural instincts, turn that nose into a super weapon to build an amazing relationship, improve recall and reduce distractions – honestly,

Scentwork really can do all that and more.

Is your dog ready to tackle the School of Sniffs challenge class?

Each week you and your dog tackle a new scentwork challenge and learn to work as a team honing your skills. We're testing out progress awards so you may be able to earn some bling to celebrate your achievements too!

What I'm sure the boys would like to put is:
"WE LOVE YOU MORAG!" - Jake Dog and Mr Oliver

....but a more practical response would be: Before we met Morag we were at breaking point with our Border Collies, we had been to every training class we could find, we had done everything the dog books tell you to and we were still losing the battle for our dogs' minds.

Morag has given us practical techniques, productive classes, insightful one-to-ones, useful resources, moral support and hope!

Having come through the confidence course 1 & 2 and enjoyed the Beyond the Basics, heel work to music and Rally-O we are carrying on to learn more and can't wait for the next set of classes to start. We would (and often do) recommend the Well Connected Canine courses to anyone with any kind of dog.

Who says you can't teach a old dog new tricks? Our Jack Russell is 5 and had had no training, after just a few weeks she had a whole repertoire of new tricks. Edwina goes with my partner to work everyday so I don't get to spend much time with her. Morag's classes are our fun hour of the week where she enjoys learning new things with mum and seeing other dogs. Thanks Morag we'll see you at the next classes.
