UK Sniffer Dogs
UK Sniffer Dog’s aim is to improve dog's lives through nose work. By applying our knowledge as dog trainers and scent instructors, we bring you workshops that will enable owners to give their dogs positive scent experiences, not only teaching them to work and play with scent, but using scent to rectify problems in pet dogs when it comes to behaviour.
Work your way through the Bronze, Silver and Gold workshops, with the option of taking part in additional trials along the way.
The workshops include learning about the incredible ability our dogs noses have, teaching your dog to search for a specific scent, teaching a freeze indication, line up searches on pots & pipes, searches on chairs and tables, bag searches, vehicle searches and searches in a variety of novel environments.
We aim to give owners the skills to train & take part in Scent Training Activities with their dogs, just like these the Working “Sniffer Dogs”!
The benefits of scent work are huge both for your dog as an individual, for you as a handler and as a growing, bonding team. This course is suitable for puppies, adults and seniors. All breeds, and temperament of dogs welcome!
Each workshop is 4 hours long and costs £90. We are currently running workshops in Hassocks, Sussex and Horley, Surrey. Your workshop will be run by Kati and another qualified UK Sniffer Dogs instructor to ensure you get maximum 121 time during the workshop.

Mantrailing is an exciting new dog sport that teaches you and your dog to hunt down a missing person. With your dogs incredible nose and your soon to be impeccable handling skills can you be the perfect team in this race against time?
Do you want to...?
✔ Build a great relationship with your dog
✔ Increase your dogs confidence
✔ Spend time adventuring outdoors
✔ Attend a fun social activity on a regular basis
One of the many amazing things about this sport is it is fully accessible to all people and dogs, regardless of age, breed or disability. This includes dogs with confidence and reactivity issues, as dogs are always worked one at a time.
Become a top search team with your pet dog in this big game of hide and seek! We teach your dog how to search, track and trail human scent across many different terrains. It is a great way of building optimism and confidence in new environments and is a fantastic form of mental enrichment whilst being low impact and therefore making it suitable for puppies, adults and seniors. Dogs of all breeds, sizes and social levels are welcome on this super fun workshop.
The benefits of Mantrailing for dogs:
Increases Dog and owner bond. Even with something as simple as increased bond between dog and owner, behavioural issues can ease. This is sometimes the hardest biggest hurdle to get over in any behaviour modification program. When you and your dog are on the same page then you can move forward.
Releases feel good hormones, as with all scent work, and relaxes your dog creating a more conducive learning environment. It can also crate good associations with triggers to help reactivity.
Mental and physical workout in one. Normal breath rates are 15bpm, general exercise 30bpm, during scent work 200-300bpm. Not only is your dog using their mind and nose they are also getting a physical workout.
Increased confidence. Scent goes where scent wants to go and to be able to follow the trail the dog must follow where the scent goes. This could be over unsteady different footing, over different levels or into areas your dog would necessarily go in the norm.
Enjoyment. Trailing is a game to our dogs, even operational dogs. It’s fun and exciting and they get a lot from it. One quick warning though, it is addictive, once you start you may not be able to stop!!
Our Mantrailing UK workshops run for 3 hours and cost £80. Please contact us on for available workshop dates and a booking form!
