Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Learn how to motivate your dog to love searching for scent detection. Build engagement and focus. We'll set you up for success and you'll have fun from the very first session.
  • Learn to train your sniffer dog, whatever your dog's age or level. We'll show you how, from fun foundation games through imprinting target odor, to starting indication training. (Prices are in Canadian dollars, so it's a great deal for our American customers).

    Our Scent Detection Foundation course breaks skills down into easily achievable components. Components are trained separately at first, then combined together, to create
    bombproof scent dogs that can search anywhere. As of Dec. 2019 updates, the course includes 37 lessons and 47 videos. This is a self-study course, so you can proceed at your dog's pace. You'll get one year access to all materials, including video footage of actual students working through the lessons with their dogs. Questions are welcome in our private Facebook group, where you can discuss scent related topics with the instructor and other students working through the lessons, when it's convenient for you.

    From bed bugs to birds, from narcotics to nosework, Hunter's Heart motivational scent training has helped hundreds of teams around the world to reach their potential. We've been sniffing since 1999, and our experience will help you to train scent detection properly and avoid the common mistakes. Minimizing errors and confusion, you'll learn to establish a clean method of communicating with your sniffer dog.

    Scent detection training is all about the rewards. We'll show you how to experiment with food, toys, food play and games. You'll see what works best for motivating your dog.

    You'll learn the best way to introduce your dog to target odor, motivate him to search
    systematically and find the precise location of source (the highest concentration of target odor). We will show you the complete process of imprinting. Dogs of any age can learn scent detection. Follow the proven protocols we use to train all ages and abilities of dogs at our classes. There should never be any pressure. It's easy, fun, and anyone can do it.
