As a dog owner, you may wonder if your furry friend can be trained to do scentwork. At Hide and Go Sniff, we specialize in scentwork and tracking training for pet dogs, offering classes and workshops for all levels of experience.
In this post, we'll explore the different types of training we offer and how they can benefit your dog.
Scentwork for fun is an activity that involves training your dog to find specific scents in a fun and engaging way. At Hide and Go Sniff, we usually use small pieces of Kong to teach dogs how to search and identify specific scents.
Learning scentwork for fun is a great way to provide mental stimulation for your dog, improve their focus and confidence, and strengthen the bond between you and your furry friend.
During our scentwork for fun classes, we use positive reinforcement training methods to encourage your dog to search for and identify the target scent. We offer a range of fun and engaging games and exercises to keep your dog interested and motivated.
Scentwork for sport or sport detection is a competitive activity that involves training your dog to identify specific scents in a range of environments. At Hide and Go Sniff, we offer workshops and classes for dogs that are interested in competing in scentwork competitions. Our experienced trainers use positive reinforcement training methods to help your dog build their skills and confidence preparing you and them for the competition environment.
Scentwork for sports can be a fun and rewarding activity for both you and your friend. It provides mental stimulation and helps to build confidence, while also providing an opportunity to compete and showcase your dog's skills.
Scentwork, whether for fun or sport is an activity that can help nervous dogs build confidence and trust. It involves teaching your dog how to identify and search for specific scents in a controlled and safe environment. Scentwork confidence building can be a great way to help your dog overcome anxiety and fear and build their confidence and self-esteem.
Mental stimulation is an essential part of your dog's overall health and wellbeing. Dogs that are mentally stimulated are less likely to become bored or destructive, and they are more likely to be happy and healthy.
And our training services could provide mental stimulation for your furry friend! So, feel free to check out all our activities.
As dogs age, they may become less mobile or experience injuries that limit their ability to exercise. Hide and Go Sniff offers the opportunity to adapt our training specifically for older or injured dogs by focusing on the mental challenges rather than physical ones. We use positive reinforcement training methods to provide mental stimulation and exercise for your beloved dog, without putting them at risk of injury.
Training for injured and old dogs can be a great way to provide mental stimulation and exercise for your furry friend, while also helping them maintain their mobility and independence.
So, can your dog be trained? The answer is yes! At Hide and Go Sniff, we believe that every dog can benefit from our scentwork training, regardless of age or previous experience. We welcome all dogs and their owners to join us for a fun and engaging training experience that will help your furry friend build confidence, improve their focus and mental stimulation, and strengthen the bond between you and your furry friend.
