WELCOME TO ASKAN-K9 TRAINING!
Having discussed your dog's nose power when referring to sniffer dog training, tracking takes this skill to the next level. Dog tracking training encourages the canine instinct to detect, recognise and follow a specific scent, whether of a person or something else.
Our stimulating training allows dogs to get their brains and noses working by offering praise as they follow an odour and find the item or person we're looking for. But this isn't the only purpose of the training; it's also a great way to work on obedience and any issues you've been having with your pet. Our trainers are there each step of the way to help make real progress with dogs of every age, breed and skill level.
THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF TRACKING
The purpose of tracking is to improve your dog's life through nose work. Applying our knowledge as highly trained dog trainers and scent instructors, we have developed a program that will enable owners to give their dogs a positive scent experience, not only teaching them to work and play with scent but using scent to rectify problems in dogs when it comes to behaviour.

OUR STRUCTURED COURSE
These courses work on a 6-block session program and are designed to get you and your dog into a tracking frame of mind, furthering your dog's natural skills of following a scent trail. Each session within the beginner's course can last between 60-90 mins, covering both theory and practical tracking activities. A certificate of attendance will be provided at the end of the 6 sessions with the opportunity to progress and work up to trial experience, if desired.
"Just started my scent training with Ken, it went really well with my Labrador Sallie. Definitely going to have more lessons, would highly recommend Ken for anyone wanting to learn scent training with their dog."
