Turn your pet dog into a detective.
Take part in the latest dog sport that everyone wants to do! Scurries are Bronze Level Accredited Instructors with UK Sniffer Dogs.
Scent detection training has long been widely used across the world, for working and operational services. Our amazing dogs have been used to search for drugs, bombs, firearms, cash, contraband, missing people and human remains. Even more amazing, in recent years dogs are being used for assistance purposes. Medical alert (diabetes and epilepsy) and medical detection, such as detecting cancer cells in humans…WOW!
We aim to give owners the skills to train and take part in scent training activities with their dogs, just like the working “sniffer dogs”!
Dogs can smell 100,000 times better than us, their nose is so sensitive that they can detect half a teaspoon of sugar in an Olympic sized swimming pool!
