The purpose of Scentwork UK is to promote and develop scentwork both as a training activity and as a dog sport with regular trials nationally.
Scentwork UK aims to:
- Provide resources for trainers and clubs offering scentwork classes and workshops,
- Set consistent national standards for scentwork trials and accreditation for those reaching the required standard.
- Provide training to allow clubs/trainers to reach accreditation (Training for Trainers courses).
- Keep an up to date database of clubs/trainers offering Scentwork UK sessions
- Keep an up to date list of all trials which have taken place and all results.
- Keep a list of all ‘trial judges’ available.
We aim to have a network of ‘Scentwork UK’ trainers offering regular affordable classes throughout the country. We are committed to ‘on-going’ trainer development through our ‘Train the Trainers’ courses.
We are promoting the ‘Scentwork UK’ model through social media and by attending shows to encourage the public to attend classes thereby supporting our ‘Recognised Trainers’.
It is ‘Scentwork UK.s’ intention to share our success and growth through our trainers so that we can become the leading organisation in ‘Scentwork’.
