DETECTION - discover the amazing world of scents

detection

DESCRIPTION:
Our unique detection classes are addressed to all dogs regardless from their age, size, breed, energy level or physical condition. Each dog-human pair works individually.
Our main goal is to get a better understanding of dogs' world of smell through play with owners.
Nosework is particularly beneficial for reactive and emotionally troubled dogs as it allows them to naturally calm down and relax.
Benefits of scent detection activities:
- building bond and trust between you and your dog,
- understanding of the dog's world of smells,
- satisfying your dog's need to work with their nose,
- developing your dog's potential,
- teaching focus and attention,
Our classes run in a secure hall where dogs and their owners can safely solve scent puzzles.

Dogs of all breeds, age and temperament (the exercises will be done individually one dog at the time, so your dog does not have to be friendly with other dogs)
