Scent work for dogs

Reasons why you should look at scent work for your dog:

  • Sniffing helps release dopamine from their brain, providing a happy good feeling
  • Provides calm mental activity (Brain workout!)
  • Keeps your dog in a lower emotional state
  • Helps your dog learn and refine their nose power
  • Provides the opportunity of independence
  • Helps build up confidence in their surrounds
  • Helps to build your bond with your dog.

Importantly every dog of any breed, age, medical status or size can do it!

If you feel your dog could benefit from independence, confidence or having lower arousal experiences, contact us today. Some of your behavioural modifications might involve some scent work for the added benefits too!
