Dog Training Classes at Pwllyn Farm 2018
Fun Nosework for Dogs - Introduction to Scent Work (Level 1)
A six week course which will introduce you and your dog to the joys of scent work. Scent work is a fast growing new dog sport that dogs love. Scent work engages 'hunt drive', and accesses the parts of your dog's brain that helps to both stimulate and focus him. A great exercise for both mind and body, scent work is a fantastic confidence builder, de-stressor and all round fun game for your dog! As an added bonus it will seriously tire him out ... perfect for your busy youngster or high drive dog. Train and hone your dog's natural instinct, learn to read your dog and work as a team through an increasingly challenging series of scent puzzles.

My most satisfying aspect of animal training is a very simple moment. After a show when I leave the stage door... and there is a crowd gathered, sometimes I hear someone say the following and it makes it all worthwhile. "How did they make that dog do that?" I smile because I am the only "they" and I do it with love.
