No longer the sole preserve of operationally trained dogs, scent work is for every dog, including dogs who are reactive and fearful. Research demonstrates that scent work can build confidence, reduce anxiety, increase focus and attention, and improve behaviour. Scent work also builds the bond between you and your dog and offers new and exciting adventures for you and your canine best friend!

Does your dog need a manners tuneup?
We teach dogs the manners and life skills to live in our crazy human world. These all important skills help dogs stay safe. Dogs with good manners and life skills can go more places, do more things, and are easier to live with at home. View our LIFE SKILLS services and "Teen Tyrant"! class
