UK Sniffer Dogs Mission Statement

To improve dog's lives through nosework. By applying our knowledge as dog trainers and scent instructors, we have developed a program 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.

The Power of Nosework is endless!

Scent work is GREAT if your dog is:
* one that has a nose!

Basically, thats all you need!
GREAT for puppies and GREAT for senior dogs and GREAT for ALL dogs in-inbetween!

Scentwork is amazing!
Training your dog how to use their nose has sooooooooo many benefits.
It helps:
* Calm
* Focus
* Impulse and self control
* Relaxation
* To tire gently
* You build a bond with your dog
* To create an unstoppable team together
* Build confidence

AND requires no previous training!

What to bring: 
  • Treats: Lots of people bring boring or unhealthy kibble or packaged treats to class and have problems getting their dog to focus or work for the whole session. I would recommend you bring plenty of small tasty treats, preferably cut up hot dogs or cut up cheese. Your dog will be very distracted in the first few classes, so tasty and smelly treats will keep them focused and motivated. The pieces do not need to be bigger than pea size. 
  • A Red Kong (MUST be a RED one!)
  • Fresh water and bowl for your dog.
  • A seat if you need it.
  • A full list of equiptment will be emailed to you nearer the time. 
  • Your dog’s favourite (NON-Squeaky) Toy, if toy motivated. 
  • Please have your dog on a harness. 
  • A smile and a sense of humour. 

Car Parking: There is a carpark in the venue.
There are toilets avaiable.
Class Instructions: When you arrive at the class, please keep your dog on the lead and away from other dogs. Some dogs attending may be fearful so please keep some distance. 

Guidelines for Emma’s Animals Classes 
  • - Please have your dog in a Harness or Flat collar, NO PRONG, CHOKE CHAINS OR ELECTRIC COLLARS ALLOWED!.
  • - Plenty of high value tasty treats (they need to be good stuff to help your dog focus better) Dont be stingy, do NOT bring kibble.
  • -Your dog’s favourite (NON-Squeaky) Toy
  • Your own water and water bowl for your dog.
  • IF your dog toilets you MUST take it home with you to dispose of yourself.
  • If you are unable to stand for the whole duration of the class, you will need to bring your own chair.
  • This is an outdoor class, please dress for the weather, classes are not cancelled for weather unless there is a warning.

I have just completed a 6 week Bronze Scent work course with my old boy Wizard. I wanted to look for a course where he and I could make some special memories and have fun together as he has a number of health issues and time is not on our side. Both Wizard and I thoroughly enjoyed this course!!!! Emma is very knowledgeable about the subject, her instructions are very clear and she has a very humerous teaching style. She went above and beyond to make Wizard and myself and all the other dogs and owners in the group feel welcome and supported. I cannot recommend her classes enough, I have already signed Wizard up for the Silver course!!!

Just completed bronze scent classes with Emma, and loved it. I had spent so long looking for scent classes that were local, and worked with my work shifts. So glad we found Emma and her classes, they are taught in a relaxed, fun way which makes it really enjoyable for both dog and handler. My dog loves scent games and using her nose so really enjoys classes and her ‘homework’. Can’t wait to start silver classes then mantrailing!
Just completed bronze class with my young EES . Both myself and Max really enjoyed the sessions. Max was super calm after the session . Emma is a good trainer, patient, calm and explained everything during the workshop. I can not wait for the silver workshop. Highly recommended
Simba and I have just finished the bronze sniffer dog training with Emma and we LOVED IT! Emma is amazing with all shapes sizes and personalities (human as well as dog 😂) Emma made me feel really welcome and most importantly Simba loved her! And he had so much fun training! We’re going straight on to man trailing next!
We've done a number of Sniffer Dogs classes with Emma, and absolutely love them. It's always really enjoyable for us and the dogs, and it's given us lots of good tips of things we can do in the house and when out and about to engage our dogs. The dogs are always tuckered out after, and we're looking forward to going onto the Silver classes!
Our first introduction to Sniffer Dog Training. Really enjoyed it. Emma is great at working with people and dogs. The course helped my dog be more calm and has given him a job! We're now looking forward to the Silver Sniffer Dog course.
Classes are fun for both the dogs and owners. Emma is a very patient and understanding teacher.
Fab classes. Well organised and run by a knowledgeable and compassionate trainer. Non judgemental which is great as my dogs are not the easiest. Thank you so much Emma. Xxxx
This has been so much fun!! We have loved this course... especially the last session where we had to find clues to catch a made up criminal!! My dog has learnt to use her nose really well and the games are great at home too keep her entertained. Also Emma has helped massively with my confidence handling my dog and is always approachable, supportive and non judemental. I would highly recommend this course to improve the bond with your dog or just for fun!! X
Emma suggested a Scenting course after we had completed a 121 training on recall and lead walking. It was the best course we ever did. The bonus is its a small class of not more than 4 thus getting individual attention. The classes are simple and fun to do with lots of encouragement and support during classes and follow ups via email. Altogether it has helped us train Amber very successfully in a short period of time with simple techniques. A very dedicated trainer who thrives on successful results between owner and dog. I forward to Session Two of Scenting with Emma. So grateful to Emma for helping us train our rescue dog, Amber.

I have recently completed the Level 1 Scentwork class with my 8 month old puppy, Missy. It has been a great experience for both of us and I have enjoyed watching her progress each week. I particularly liked that she was learning a skill with both fun and practical applications, which was a refreshing change after the obedience lessons in puppy training. Emma was good at adapting the training when Missy was struggling or having an off day, and we always left with a feeling of accomplishment. I would recommend this class for people looking to dedicate some quality time to their dog and provide them with a fun mental workout.
Luna and I loved the scentwork classes with Emma, Tuesdays haven't been the same since our regular "sniffing class" finished and we can't wait for the Level 2 to start. Scentwork was brilliant for my little Dachschund x who is very much led by her nose, she learnt to evaluate situations better and I found that even since the classes stopped she hasn't. Now instead of just searching for things on the floor Luna has learnt to look on top of, in and around things which is just a joy to watch. Luna's only disappointment in the class was that on occasion she had to sit back and watch while she let other dogs have a go!!
We completed Level 1 Scentwork with Emma and found the course thoroughly enjoyable - so much so we have signed up for Level 2! Emma is so patient, the classes are (appropriately) small and she responds to the needs of each individual dog meaning everyone feels they are getting the most out of the session. She clearly really enjoys what she does (which has not been the impression we have had from all trainers/ classes we have attended in the past) which means that we also really enjoy the sessions. Scentwork has been great for building the bond between us and our dog (she is now using her nose to work with us, not against us!), has given us some great new ways to play with her (both at home and on walks) through training that is enjoyable for both dog and owner.Really glad we found Emma and these classes!
