Canine Scent Investigation
Your dog loves to smell his way through the day – this is his way of ‘reading the newspaper’! This course will teach you to harness your dogs natural nose skills and use them to create a great learning experience for you both, increasing the value of your relationship and providing huge enjoyment.
