In this video, Pam Mackinnon shows us how we can use nose work in our dog training as enrichment and great mental exercise for our dogs.

Pam explains how she has started teaching 'scentwork' at her 'Talking Dogs' training classes and how you can turn your dog's favourite pastime into your favourite hobby.

Dogs love to sniff and smell their way through the day. Why not harness this skill? Pam Mackinnon brings her experiences as a Customs drug detector dog handler to her teachings. She has been teaching various types of searches in her classes for the last two years and has been delighted with the enthusiasm of both dogs and owners to learn scentwork skills.

Over the next few months, we will be bringing you more videos from Pam including the benefits of teaching Scentwork as well as a practical demonstration of how to go about teaching your dog to follow a scent trail to find a food reward or a toy.
