A Bit About Us
Rhea has developed her love of scentwork after spending thirteen years working at the Metropolitan Police Dog Training Establishment within the kennels. Being able to observe and participate in all forms of the puppies and Police Dogs training had a cascading effect and a desire to bring that fun to the pet dog world! Rhea is a Qualified scentwork instructor, as well as a Mantrailing UK Instructor
Rhea has spent the last nineteen years working in the canine industry, caring for pet dogs, at a rescue centre and the majority at the police kennels. During this time she completed many qualifications including a Degree in Canine Behaviour & Training, Canine first aid and Scentwork qualifications.
Scentwork is one of the UKs fastest growing canine sports as it's an all inclusive sport. Which means that any dogs, regardless of age, breed or physical ability can join in. This isn't just for your working dogs like Police dogs, Military or medical detection dogs but for YOUR dogs as well!
There are so many benefits for pet dogs learning scentwork, not only is it super fun and a great source of mental stimulation, there are several behavioural benefits too! Scenting is a natural behaviour that releases Serotonin (the happy hormone) which can help calm a nervous or anxious and build confidence at the same time. Check out our services page to learn more.
