Chippers Search Dogs
Every dog is a potential Sniffer Dog !
Throughout time it is the dogs extraordianary sense of smell that has helped man become successful , helping to track and locate animals for food and alerting us to danger of approaching marauders, finding water and the way home! Today that relationship continues in many sporting guises such as gun dog work, working trials, field trials to the more serious and life saving work of detection and search and rescue dog teams and in more recent times Scentwork for Pet Dogs.
Scentwork utilsies your dogs natural ability to search and find . A low impact, mentally stimulating yet calming activity means that it is suitable for dogs of all ages , Puppys over 5 months , retired competition dogs , golden oldies, rebellious teenagers and all breeds from Chihuahahs to Great Danes . Great for calming excitable dogs and building confidence and drive in more reserved dogs. Above all dogs love it.
Scentwork is the fastest growing activity and sport in the canine world.
Our classes follow the Scentwork UK guidelines, the largest pet dog scentwork organisation in the UK
