Do You Want to Unleash Your Dog's Full Potential?

Then Scent Detection is for You

What is scent detection?

Scent detection training involves teaching your dog to identify and search for a specific odour.

Have you seen police dogs sniffing an area to find substances such as explosives and drugs and then suddenly freezing on the spot to let their human know they found something important?!  

Well, this is what you can teach your dog too, only without using any illegal substances!

What are the benefits of scent detection?

Scent detection is not only fun, but it’s also a great way to keep your dog mentally stimulated, helping them become calmer, happier, and more relaxed. 

It’s also an excellent physical workout, as it encourages dogs to move with awareness.

This can be especially great if you have a young dog who loves to go self-employed or a senior dog on restricted physical exercise.

Don't Just Take My Word For It!

Really helped me with my confidence

I contacted Giulia after a recommendation and I was not disappointed.

I had a new puppy and was struggling with being a first time fur mum to know how to handle everything that comes with a puppy.

She has taught me valuable skills and really helped me with my confidence and in turn with Teddy’s confidence and trust in me.

She was available at all times which is great and always happy to share her advice.

We feel so much happier

Giulia is such a brilliant dog trainer, I would highly recommend hiring her if you are looking for 1:1 support with your adolescent pooch.

She really listened to our concerns over the 4 week programme and gave us lots of actionable steps and encouragement in the sessions, whilst following up with an email full of brilliant resources that we could recap on and practice with our dog!

We feel so much happier having worked with Giulia.

Everything you could want in a dog trainer

Giulia is everything you could want in a dog trainer - she is kind and empathetic towards the dogs, always putting their wellbeing and happiness at the forefront of everything she does.

She is also extremely knowledgeable and perfectly structured and clear in the way that she conveys her knowledge and experience in the form of a group class.

We loved completing the scent course with Giulia and would be delighted to work with her again with our dog Cilla in the future.
