Our new purpose built facility in Deptford, Warminster is specifically designed to cater for all the vital foundations that go into training a search dog. Split into 2 training areas, there is a busy, ever changing area with different levels and surfaces for the dogs to work on their environmental training. There is a classroom with varied scent walls and a clean area for working on consoles and indication training.

Classes will include:

Puppy Detection Discovery

A purpose built environment with areas and items for your puppy to explore, build independence and progress with their environmental training. The very first foundations will be built for you to start your journey into detection or just to expose your puppy to new environments in a safe and secure way.

Puppy Detection Vital Foundations

For those wanting to do detection with their puppy. Over a 4 week course we will build on the confidence your puppy has gained in our discovery sessions and provide both of you with the vital foundations for detection. Your puppy will most importantly learn to search and also develop the beginnings of an indication. We will also cover odour selection and begin the imprinting process.

Detection - Building on the Foundations 

This 4 week course will build on everything you and your dog have learned in the Vital Foundations and Next Steps courses. It is also suitable for dogs confidently on odour with a clear indication. During this course we will look at more challenging hides and environments, developing your skills to read your dogs body language and build up their confidence to indicate on different hides. 

Advanced Detection 
For handlers that are keen to progress within detection, either in sport or operationally, to do this course your dog must love it as much as you because both of you will be challenged. It's a chance to learn more about you and your dog and how you work as a team, you'll be challenged with areas and hides, we will also look at training logs and how logging your training helps with progression and problem solving.
