Scentwork

As a DogNostics Fun Scent Games Trainer, Scentwork UK &  World Scent Dog Association certified Trainer/judge, Avril runs regular scentwork classes.

We start with our Introduction to Scentwork which can be done either online via Zoom or our in person workshops.

Introduction workshops are held in Midlothian (Penicuik & Bonnyrigg).

Once you have completed our Intro to Scentwork, and your dog is able to search for your chosen odour, you will be invited to join us in our Imanje Scent Club*.

We will help you teach your dog to find a specific odour, alert to tell you they have it, and help you learn your dog's body language to ensure that together you work as a team.


This sport is a great confidence builder, creates a stronger bond with your dog and provides puzzle solving and enrichment opportunities to tire your 4-legged friend.

*Scent Club is for those who have completed a Level 1, Level 2 course or an Intro to Scentwork either online or in person with Avril Young, our Head Trainer.

Introduction to Scentwork Workshop

In person workshop £55 (per dog/handler team) 3hrs
Online course £100 (per dog/handler team) 4 weeks

Our introduction workshops will give you the basics to start your Scentwork journey. These are a mix of theory and practical learning, and you will have ample opportunity to ask questions while having fun with your dog.

Our workshops are held indoors so we can only accommodate dogs who are happy to work with other dogs moving around them (ie not reactive dogs).  

For those who can't make class, this workshop is provided as an only course (Funky Foundations) over a 4 week period.

Scentwork is for any breed, age or stage your dog is and we begin our journey learning the foundations that we will build on in time.

Using only force free methods and a whole heap of fun rewards, and as an accredited Scentwork UK/WSDA/DN-DSG FN Instructor and judge, (as well as a Mantrailing UK Instructor), our aim is to help you and your dog have as much fun as possible.

Once you have completed the Introduction workshop, you can join us more Scentwork levels which will be available on the website for booking.
