Introducing

Save Our Summer

The easiest proven route for owners of pulling, lunging, barking, high-energy dogs to take back their freedom and love walking their dogs… and taking them to cafes, on holidays and days out!

Join us in the Save Our Summer programme to calm, focus and train your challenging dog, with step-by-step coaching from an elite team of Reactive & Distracted Dog Specialists. 

When you have a well behaved dog you’re proud of, you can experience the worry-free, guilt-free walks, days out and holidays you see other people enjoying.

What You're Going to Do.

Save Our Summer is an interactive programme that gives owners of reactive & easily distracted dogs the essential tools, guidance and implementation they need to prevent painful pulling on the lead, lunging, manic barking, infuriating recall, and those big embarrassing reactive meltdowns… and prepare for your best summer yet! 

Let me take you through what you’ll receive when you enroll and why it’s different from what other trainers and behaviourists can offer at this level of investment.

Skills + Strategy

Essential owner Knowledge

Plus the essential knowledge every dog owner needs for preventing unpleasant situations before they happen!

💬 Body Language: Know your dog’s body language inside out to avoid unpleasant situations before they happen.

💥 Trigger stacking is where several minor triggers build up to cause an intense reaction. The straw that broke the camel’s back. It’s essential to recognise the tell-tale signs before your dog reaches breakpoint.  

🌊 Flooding might look like ‘good’ calm behaviour, but if your dog is flooded, they’re not coping well and reactions can intensify. 

Superstar Skills for Dogs + Clued Up Guardians = Stress Free Summer Adventures!

Who Is This Programme Perfect For ?

We take a unique ‘Calm First’ approach to canine behaviour problems with specialist – but simple – techniques to calm your dog from the inside out.

Not just the training methods that address the obvious problem (pulling on the lead, reactivity, hyperactivity, etc), but a calm dog who listens to you in every situation.

Not just fixing the obvious problem, but making others less likely to arise.

The moment you have the tools to keep your dog calm, everything else starts falling into place

Calm on walks, calm in the house, calm on days out, calm on holidays.

That’s why it works for a range of different dogs:

The best part about making your dog calm first is that all the problems get easier to tackle – not just the main one! This means you can improve, say, loose lead walking and reactivity at the same time (because there’s rarely just one problem). 

You simply can’t get the kind of transformation we create with training techniques alone. Significant results require a significantly different approach, plus a little bit of Scentventure magic.

And you don’t even need training experience. You only need to implement our simple method of creating calm  – and anybody can do that.

With the Calm First approach you’ll experience immediate relief (quick wins that take the pressure off you today) and build long lasting good behaviour for a lifetime.

The good news is… it’s so easy to get started.

A Unique Approach
for Unique Results. . .

Adele & Lucky

‘’We had been to many other dog trainers beforehand who all did different things but after seeing the results with Lucky we now can see he needed to relax and be calm first before any training could be done.’’

Rachel & Jasper

‘’I have seen a much calmer Jasper overall by getting the foundations of calm first. It allowed us to make progress in other areas too. A calmer dog helps you get better progress.’’

Lucy & Bo

‘’It’s not just dog training, although the resources and advice for that are amazing. It’s a framework for your life with your dog, an approach that helps dogs and humans to live happily together and it has enriched my life as well as Bo’s.’’

Chris & Ash

“I feel so lucky to have found this program and this community. I didn’t think anything would stop Ash’s lunging and barking, this training has changed the game. Today we walked past a shouting German Shepherd - with total calm and focus!!!”

Claire & Paulo

“Thank god for Scentventure! Paulo has never paid attention on walks and wouldn’t come back if there was anything more interesting - which was literally everything! He pulled on the lead too so walks were just depressing. Thanks to you, we’re about to head off on a walk, with a guarantee of return everytime I whistle. Game changer, everyone wins!”

Collette & Libbylou

All I can say is Scentventure has been our saviour and today truly shows that time, love, patience, sticking the plan and having belief in you and your dog (and we are entirely remote as we are in London) works. Thank you to everyone who has helped us on this journey, today I do not have a reactive dog.

High level support from
a high level team.

From the moment you join you’ll enjoy more 1-1 touchpoints with trainers & behaviourists than any other dog training membership. 

This is not one of those programmes where you’re left to get on with it on your own (and your motivation slips away faster than a Spaniel on a rabbit scent!). 

I’m serious about helping you to overcome any potential challenge you may face on your way to Stress Free Walks and Calm Canine Behaviour. That’s why your one small monthly fee gives you access to a team of experts – with a universal goal of helping you achieve stress free walks and calm canine behaviour, for a fraction of the cost. 

Not all dog trainers and behaviourists are created equally, and specialists in reactive, overly excited or easily distracted dogs need a well-stocked toolbox with additional skill sets in advanced behaviour, wellness and wellbeing.

Scentventure is led by these specialists, practicing the best, kindest, most up-to-date and effective methods. Prioritising your success, ethical training and above all, the welfare of the dogs we love. It starts with your private 1-1 Consultation to dig deep into what’s holding you back and how to fix it. 

The best in the business are now on YOUR team. Whether you’re planning, practicing, progressing or celebrating, we’ve got you. When you need a quick answer, we’re waiting to help. 

No other dog training programme provides this caliber of specialist practitioners and 1-1 time at this price point. It’s the next level of support rarely seen in the dog industry.

Customised for You & Your Dog

by Best-in-Industry Practitioners

Join before 9pm Sunday for
An Unparalleled Bonus Package.

All this is yours when you enroll by 9pm Sunday 31st March

January Bursary

£10 Value

We’ve never done this before! Last year we listened to what participants were struggling with and we’ve created a brand new solution for 2024. 

January can feel like an eternity, especially if you haven’t been paid since before Christmas. But we also know you don’t want to lose the momentum you created in the Challenge! To lighten the load and ensure you don’t lose your progress, I’m thrilled to present you with an exclusive discount this year: Enroll for the remainder of January for just £19!

Dedicated Roadmap Support

£250 Value

You might be thinking, this sounds amazing but I’m not sure about taking a course. Maybe I just need 1-1 support, maybe I just need someone to take me by the hand and guide me each step of the way so I don’t get stuck and fall behind. 

You don’t need to choose!

You’ll have a 1-1 Consultation to dig deep and identify the specific areas where you and your dog need support. Address them head-on to ensure you start on the path to success. 

This means that from the very beginning, every moment you invest in your dog’s development counts, saving you time and energy. You wouldn’t normally have access to a 1-1 Consultation in a membership like this, but I’d prefer to make sure you start with total confidence and absolute clarity.

Second, you’ll get access to a Roadmap community group where you’ll receive personalised feedback and advice about your dog, so you can feel confident you’re always progressing in the right direction and not making any mistakes. 

This kind of access to 1-1 expert coaching is unheard of at this price point… and this is your chance to secure your 2024 LIVE place.

Progress Planner & Tracker

£49 Value

No more guessing games! The Progress Planner & Tracker streamlines your training experience, ensuring that every step is well-documented, tracked, and celebrated. You’ll see where your dog excels and where a simple direction is needed, supporting your results with effectiveness and speed. 

The Progress Planner & Tracker helps you plan your training sessions, tailor your approach to focus on areas that need improvement and build on the successes you’ve already achieved.

It’s more than just a way to stay organised though; it’s a celebration of accomplishments marking every achievement along the way. As you witness your dog’s growth, you’ll feel a sense of pride and satisfaction as your progress bars expand, and enjoy the real world behaviour change that happens before your eyes. 

If you LOVE a planner for getting organised – or you know you NEED to get more organised, this is perfect for you! 

The Progress Planner & Tracker is your personal training assistant to keep you organised and on route to your goals.

Live Small Group Coaching With Katie

£120 Value

Bonus #4 is coaching with me personally.

It’s £197 to work with me for an hour because of my wealth of experience having helped more than one hundred thousand dogs and their families via my dog parks and dog training programmes and the work I did at Dogs Trust, as well as the hundreds of thousands more via national campaigns for responsible dog ownership including the successful campaign to parliament for compulsory microchipping. It’s my 14 years experience to know what works and what doesn’t that I’m sharing with you at our live small group meetings… and you get access to that in this bonus.

I’ll be personally hosting a welcome meeting just for you new members who are joining now. Then we’ll meet twice more to dive deep into the things I desperately want to share with you so you can avoid the mistakes I made and supercharge your success. 

Get my input, feedback or advice on ANYTHING that's holding you back — your dog, your confidence and wellbeing — literally any topic related to your goal for stress free walks and a harmonious happy home life.

Turbo Chargers

£200 Value

You’ll get access to weekly LIVE group coaching calls where you can ask your Roadmap Specialist any and all questions you have — 10 in total!

Bring your toughest challenges or roadblocks to these sessions for brainstorming, feedback and immediate insightful suggestions for how to move forward.

Imagine jumping on your weekly call with a problem you’re thinking about…

  • “Which technique should I use when my dog barks at the neighbours in the garden?”
  • “Recall training is going amazingly until she smells a rabbit. What am I missing?”
  • “I’m not sure if this behaviour is anxiety or excitement. Please help!”
  • “I love the activity in the fourth lesson! How can I make it more challenging so she’s even more relaxed?”
  • “What would you do to get even more focus in this situation?”

Whatever’s on your mind, ask your Specialist — and get an answer.

You’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you are receiving guidance from the best professionals that this industry has to offer. A private consultation with this practitioner would set you back £150. You’ll have regular live access to her for a sliver of the cost - £1.25/day to be exact. 

Done-for-You Partnership Plan

£375 Value

That’s right, we’re actually going to create your next-level training plan FOR you! And not just any training plan. We’re going to go one better than that and create your Partnership Plan. 

Picture the scene: Thanks to the Roadmap your dog is calmer, more focused and relaxed, which means you are too. You’ve had some big wins already so you’re feeling good

Now your problems are in-hand, it’s time to find your dog’s magic and unleash another level of results (that most dog owners don’t know is there!)

Because you took the Calm-First approach, your dog’s brain is now firing on all cylinders, primed for success. This is the moment we’ve been building up to. The training you embark on now is not just training; it can be a transformation. It’s efficient, effective, and easier than ever before. In other words, it’s the peak moment to push forward faster.

Cue: The Partnership Plan. Your Bullseye Behaviour Booster. 

We hyper-focus right in on a personal goal that will improve your life and deepen your relationship:

New for 2024!

Here’s the thing though. Members usually create their own Partnership Plan. You, on the other hand, will have it done for you.

We’ll have a 1-1 chat with you and then we’ll go away and create your milestones and how to achieve them – then all you have to do is follow the plan. With this bonus you’ll be able to relax, knowing your BIG GOAL is set up right.

To hire a face to face behaviourist for this level of direct personal support would set you back at least £250, and that’s just for the initial consultation and written plan without the ongoing support. We work with you until you achieve your Partnership Goal. 

This is a new level of personal support that you’ve never had before, and if you’ve ever failed to get results in another course or programme, being set up right with an expert plan will be the reason.

Compass Point Awards Handbook

£15 Value

Watching everyone else have fun, winning ribbons and rosettes, working as a team with their ‘perfectly behaved dogs’ felt heartbreaking in my early days with Lao. It was like there was this whole world of achievement, camaraderie and excitement that we were rejected from. 

YOU know your dog is clever, gentle, talented, funny, and that they ARE capable of amazing things… just like those other dogs! I believe they should get the credit they deserve. 

This is their time to shine, to show their achievements to the world! 

I designed the Awards so that you too can experience the satisfaction of smashing achievements while improving your dog’s behaviour. You don’t need to wait until they are deemed ‘socially acceptable’ by cliquey sport clubs (whose rules rarely seem to benefit the dogs themselves). Instead you can ‘earn while you learn’ in a totally inclusive community, at your own pace.

Working as a team with your dog towards Awards gives your relationship a sense of purpose. You’re no longer on the outside looking in; you’re at the beating heart of an exciting new purpose-driven adventure!  

Your Compass Point Awards Handbook is where to reference, organise, document and celebrate all of this.

Achievements Pennant & Award Badge!

£15 Value

This bonus may not have as much value in monetary terms as the others, but it is by far the most meaningful. 

When you complete the Roadmap, our graduation gift to you is your Roadmap Award badge AND a Scentventure pennant to proudly display it on. 

Collect the badges, watch your dog excel and feel a GINORMOUS sense of pride and achievement.

What Members say
about Club Dogwood’s Value

Janet, Nancy & Mirko

‘’There really isn't the words to describe how great the value has been. To me it has been a small price to pay to have Nancy and Mirko fulfilling their potential but being so happy which is important to me. The bond and partnership that the 3 of us have now has grown so strong I could not have imagined it 18 months ago.’’

Sue & Lily

‘’We have found Club Dogwood to be great value for our monthly investment . We have access to a huge and ever growing library of resources. Interesting and informative expert guest zoom presentations. New, innovative themes each month, and access to expert advice. Most of all, a calmer, happier partnership with Lily = priceless.’’

Emma & Harry

‘’Club Dogwood has been exceptionally good value for us - I can't even describe how much. The incredibly supportive community stops me from feeling alone with Harry's anxieties, the club is always there to pick me up when something hasn't gone to plan and to celebrate all the successes along the way. The library gives you so many techniques to deal with whatever life throws at you, and I can rest easy knowing that they are firmly rooted in latest research, as they quote results from up-to-date studies.’’

Jenny & Stan

‘’It is amazing value! The community, challenges and personalised advice from the Scentventure Guides is worth every penny.’’

Ronja & The Tzus

‘’It’s really inexpensive, I love that I don’t have to buy the newest fanciest items, it’s all so practical and can be done anywhere.’’

Mary & Peppa

‘’Club Dogwood has such supportive members and that adds to the value you get from being a member. I’m very happy with my monthly investment.’’

Let's get started.

What Will Having a Calm,
Well Behaved, Happy Dog Mean to YOU?

If I guide you past the obstacles and the mistakes I made, and show you how to calm, focus and train your dog so that they stop pulling on the lead and ignoring your recall cues, if they stop jumping up or barking and lunging at other dogs and people… what would that be worth to you?

Take Club Dogwood members Ronja & Rocky

Try as she might… and she’d tried a lot… she couldn’t get a handle on Rocky’s reactivity. Ronja described him as ‘extra spicy’ and a ‘piranha’ – yep, he was a biter!

Now Ronja, Rocky and the Tzus go to food markets, abroad, the Lakes, the beach, they go everywhere together.

“Rocky used to be very reactive and would have a pop at any dog unless it was a Tzu. He was like a piranha to fresh flesh!

The techniques we picked up in Club Dogwood made him relax even when dogs started charging towards us. One day we decided to take him to a dog cafe and see what he’d be like. He looooved it! So we started taking Rocky slowly but surely to more ‘social’ events, and we realised, yes he has triggers but he wants to take part in everything. So last year Shaun said, right let’s take Rocky to meet Katie at The North East Dog Festival. I was nervous, not going to lie, but he was completely unfazed. We let him guide us and pick his own path. He was in his element. It was so surreal, this spicy dog, amongst all these dogs, only focusing on the tasty stalls and all the attention (he used to have an issue with black trousers too, no idea why but he used to have a go at them too). 

So when his fave dog bakery was at Harewood House Dog Fest, of course we took him. The way Rocky walked so happy and excited, waiting in line with barking dogs, meeting his favourite baker and wagging his tail whilst she made him a puppachino, posing happily in front of all the displays without me holding on to his lead for dear life, he absolutely loved it. It felt like it was Rocky’s Fest!

I have never ever liked ‘dog training’ hated it, I don’t like being told what to do, so why should my dog? But Scentventure isn’t telling your dog what to do, it’s about partnership and love and being stupid together (my fave part ).

Rocky has overcome so much, just wish he knew what a special little boy he is!”

It’s not just Ronja who noticed the results. Not even 6 weeks into working with us, Anthea said -

‘’This morning Rolo and I have successfully and confidentially negotiated cats and a dog he always used to react to. Love this group for giving me back my confidence and enjoyment of dog walks.

I can honestly say that I never expected the results that we have had to date. Not only has Rolo’s reactivity outside dramatically reduced but some of the ‘weird’ traits he displayed at home haven’t been seen for a while too. Love the way this is a whole life approach for your dog that reaps the unexpected rewards too.

I have spent the last 3.5 years being dragged around on walks… 6 weeks of Scentventuring and he just amazes me. I am so proud of this boy tonight.”

Not to mention these amazing members...

121 Trainer vs. Scentventure

Which Path Will You Take?

Will you follow the herd down the well-trodden path, seeking quick fixes with in-person trainers that merely patch up the problem in the short term? Will you stick to the same old outdated advice, just because “that’s how it’s done” in the dog training industry?

Or, will you blaze the new trail for long-lasting results, where easy loose lead walking, lightning-fast recall, calm greetings, and endless fun, freedom and adventure awaits? The choice is yours – mediocrity or mastery. Which road will you choose?

Scentventure has the same features you’d expect from face-to-face training:

There’s just one thing though… lots of dog owners think Scentventure is actually BETTER than face-to-face training, not to mention way cheaper. 

(I know! I can’t believe I said that either because I am a face-to-face trainer!)

Emma & Harry

The online membership keeps me on track in a way that in-person training never could; seeing the journey of other members motivates me to keep going. Where in-person training is often for a set period of time and number of sessions, the online membership is there whenever I need it. I can dip into courses to help at a time that suits me, and I can always ask a Scentventure guide for advice no matter the topic. Also, in-person training doesn't have a whole community of people picking you up when you're down and cheering you on, Club Dogwood does.

Face to Face

Club Dogwood

Support Hours Available

Finite amount of time available. Often a lack of availability when you most need immediate assistance.

The unbeatable advantage of 7-days support, ensuring you're never alone on your journey to stress free walks.

Limitations on the depth of coverage for complex issues in 1 hour/week.

8 til 8 coverage (and always knowledgeable members around outside these hours).

Waiting list of several months (good trainers) and squeezing in appointments.

Immediate access to the flexibility of personalised support at a time that suits you best.

Expertise & Specialism

Limitations on depth of knowledge in nutrition, health, scentwork, enrichment, and life stages or breed types.

A team that combines specialist skill sets for a collaborative approach in advanced behaviour and wellness.

If your dog’s needs extend beyond their field, you will miss out on comprehensive solutions.

A Hive Mind with decades of combined wisdom and experience.

Smaller network and fewer resources impact their ability to deliver comprehensive solutions.

Elite Practitioners selected from across 3 Continents (we’re not tied to the limited local pool of talent).

Cost

The average price for a consultation comes to £250+. That’s for the diagnosis and report - no training support.

Instead of spending £50/week you can spend less than £40… per month.

Hire a trainer to take your dog off your hands and do it for you. These services range from £450 to £4000+ (and I wouldn’t send my dog to any of them).

Your £1.25/Day allows us to plan strategically and allocate resources where they matter most — investing in cutting-edge team and resources.

Hope that less expensive trainers will be the unicorn that solves it for you. Get this wrong and you’ll throw good money after bad.

One guaranteed fixed cost/month versus the ever-expanding situation of ‘more sessions needed.’

These members prefer the real life environment,
stress free approach, affordability, flexibility & motivation they get in Scentventure…

Lisa & Bella

‘’It gives me opportunity to practice new skills in my dog’s own environment where they felt most comfortable and also fit around my schedule.’’

Shivvy & Gus

‘’Life can be stressful and hectic at times and with other commitments it can be difficult to commit to face to face training. I also think the real work is what you do outside of face to face training anyway.’’

Christie & Jax

‘’My previous experiences of in person dog training were quite stressful as they were group classes and Jax is excitable around other dogs. The online element means I can clearly explain issues or things I wanted to work on and also receive tailored advice because when a Scentventure Guide replies to your post, you’re getting their full attention.’’

Jennifer & Tara

‘’The biggest advantage is it’s flexible. If some weeks we can't do as much then it's okay. It fits into our lifestyle better than trying to make it to an in person class.’’

Danielle & Tillie

‘Because training and introduction to activities isn't confined to one hour time slots once a week there is scope to go into more in depth discussions, attend online classes, and add some fun and creativity to the process too.’

Emma & Buster

‘’With 1-2-1 training you tend to get to tackle one issue at a time (e.g. loose lead walking, recall, car training etc). Scentventure is a lifestyle approach and all the different bits add up to building a true partnership with your dog that benefits all of the other training goals you might have. The unlimited access to feedback and advice from the Scentventure Guides is far beyond what you get with standard 1-2-1 training and is accessible seven days a week, instead of in a pre-booked slot once or twice a week. It's so much easier to stay on track when you have a whole online community to support you and share your journey with.’’

Hear about
the dog who started it all

I’m Katie, Creator of Scentventure. I was a fellow owner of a reactive dog, so I know they can be easy to love, but hard to live with.

My own rescue dog Lao used to pull, bark, bite and lunge. Not only did I dread taking him for a walk because it was so stressful and I was at the mercy of other people’s judgement, but I constantly felt guilty. I was so sad that he missed out on all the fun, adventure and freedom I saw other people enjoying with their dogs.

I was envious. He deserved that too. It was like I was letting him down.

One day, before work, I went to the farmers’ fields and unclipped his lead. He got the scent of something and ran away. I eventually found him by a fence between the farmers’ fields and a dog rehoming centre. The rehoming centre was Dog Trust… where I worked. 

My mind raced with everything that could have gone wrong. He could have attacked a dog, bitten one of my colleagues – I’d lose my job, he could have wandered further out onto the road and got knocked over… and I thought, ‘Maybe I should just take him in there and he can find  a better owner than me because I was clearly failing him.’ 

I listened to the dogs in their kennels howling and crying and realised that wasn’t an option for me… it was my rock bottom moment.

Scentventure was born out of necessity. If I couldn’t give him up, and I couldn’t keep going as things were, I needed to take matters into my own hands. 

I discovered a way to help Lao feel so relaxed on walks that he could walk past other dogs calmly and go off lead on the beach, at the park and in the forest. 

It’s my 14 years of learning and experimentation to refine this process and see what works (and what doesn’t) that I share inside the Scentventure Framework. 

It gave us back our freedom. 

The twice daily dread, the excuses and apologies became a thing of the past and best of all, I no longer felt I was failing him because I knew he was happy and fulfilled. 

The real breakthrough with my reactive rescue dog Lao happened not with recall training (though we definitely had that) or in the loose lead walking practice (had that too) or even in the ‘socialisation’ sessions.

Momentum was made when I adopted the Calm First approach and we were able to go to nice places again.

Now we have an international community of Scentventure Superstars enjoying stress free walks and adventures all around the world, and that’s why I say that a challenging dog can bring you so much more than you ever dreamed. 

I know what it’s like to feel desperate, having tried everything else. 

I know what it’s like to almost give up hope.

I know how other people in my position can break through too… and it’s not with endless hours of training.

The good news is… I’ve done the hard work for you. You just need to trust that nagging feeling inside you that there is more for you, because there IS.

Say yes to the future you and your dog deserve, and I’ll walk with you until you get there. What Lao taught me is that life is short and our dogs’ lives are shorter still. How many more summers might you have left with them – 5, 10? Every single one counts.

Thank you Lao, we owe it all to you buddy.

Katie Guastapaglia

The alternative

Training and behaviour problems can get worse if not addressed, and they become more time consuming and costly to fix. 

Money isn’t everything of course. There are more important things at stake.

I know from experience that your dog’s behaviour can drive a wedge between you and your loved ones. Nobody wants to be stuck at home this summer because of ‘the dog.’

Things continue to get more tense at home. Nobody gets it. Family members don’t want to come on walks anymore because every last bit of your mental and physical energy goes into preventing your dog’s meltdowns… sending a clear message of how much more important ‘the dog’ is than they are.

The spectre of rehoming looms and the guilt terrifies and paralyses you. The last thing you want is for your dog to be one of the 130,000 to enter a rehoming centre this year, just another statistic. You blame yourself and you worry about your dog constantly. You love your dog but it’s so hard!

You need hope. You know that of course it will take time to retrain your dog, and you made a commitment to them that you wouldn’t give up. But there’s no light at the end of the tunnel — no tunnel at all in fact. You feel lost, scared and stuck.

Stress, overwhelm, worry. The cost to your mental health is the ultimate price you pay.

Your health, your peace of mind, your family… they need you to make a decision

Where would you rather be this summer? How would it feel to step out in August with a dog you can trust, love walking, and include in family plans?

Imagine…

All the things you’ll have to look forward to together; long relaxing walks, lazy pub afternoons, coffee shops and beer gardens, reliable and trustworthy at BBQs and parties or on days out, planning trips and holidays for the nicer weather ahead. The time to start planning for that kind of freedom is now. 

A dog that you’re proud of and is a pleasure to spend time with is only one decision away.  

You deserve a programme that understands you, a coach that guides you and a community that supports you. We are ready when you are.

What I’m really offering you here today isn’t just a well behaved dog, but the opportunity to regain your freedom and your peace of mind, while making a huge difference in the lives of your family and your other pets (we know they miss out too living with a challenging dog).

Every moment you put off addressing your dog’s difficult behaviour, you’re missing out on valuable time together. 

Still Got Questions?
No Problem. We Have Answers!

Do the maths with me: it will cost you at least £50/week for an entry-level face to face trainer – not a behaviourist, obviously. Instead of spending £50/week you can spend less than £40… per month. For a team of trainers & behaviourists with collective specialist skill sets. 

Members believe Scentventure is incredible value for money because they get an Elite team of trainers & behaviourists on hand whenever they need them, without the usual behaviourist price tag. We don’t expect you to take our word for it. Read what our members say about Scentventure.

We’re an international community of Scentventure Superstars enjoying fun, freedom and adventure all over the world! Members from the UK, Europe, America, Australia and South Africa apply the training at home and out on their local everyday walks. 

The beauty is that it’s not limited to location and that means that our members are all genuinely here because they want to be – not because they have to settle for limited local options. 

You probably already know that your dog has an incredible sense of smell. And you may have heard people say that scentwork is like a miracle for calming down reactive and easily distracted dogs. 

But did you know that ⅓ of your dog’s brain is dedicated to their sniffing superpower? That’s why sniffing is so relaxing – it uses A LOT of brainpower! 

In Scentventure we hack into this naturally rewarding and relaxing sense a lot. It’s not all about scentwork though – scent is just ONE of the tools from our kit of techniques that bring calm confidence and focus to reactive, anxious and overexcitable, easily distracted dogs to make them walk nicely on the lead, come back when called, walk past other dogs without kicking off and ignore distractions. 

In other words, Scentventure is a full and complete solution to your dream of stress free dog walks.

Everyone wonders this before they join! I started Club Dogwood when my face-to-face classes reached a 7 month waiting list. I knew I could teach Scentventure just as well online… what I didn’t expect was that it would get even BETTER results than face-to-face.

Several reasons – the first, a team of trainers & behaviourists can solve behaviour problems more thoroughly than a solo practitioner; and that means faster and more effectively. We confer and collaborate in order to provide a full and complete solution for each of our unique members.

Face to face training tends to work for a while, while you’re on a programme and you employ new things but eventually dog owners fall back into old patterns. At the end of the day, most dog owners eventually come to the realisation that it’s not just their dog that needs to change, but that they do too. Success in dog training is about your knowledge and understanding, and the most effective, efficient way to achieve that is outside of practical sessions.

If your dog has more than one issue e.g. they’re pulling on the lead and they’re reactive, face to face training gets very costly. In Scentventure we can work on several issues at the same time using the Calm First approach.

You’re not. There’s no minimum term so you can cancel any time, no hard feelings. Our community is like a family, so it only makes sense for people to stay who love Scentventure as much as we do. There’s literally nothing to lose.

Scentventure is so much more than an online programme. It’s a fully interactive dog training experience with expert trainers and behaviourists to guide you every step of the way towards stress free walks. It’s fun, it’s friendship, it’s community, it’s belonging. You’re not doing this on your own anymore.

Honestly, I get it. I used to think Lao was a monster! 

When people first join Scentventure they all think the same: ‘’My dog is really badly behaved! They show me up all the time.’’ 

Or they say – ‘‘Maybe these methods work for Cockapoos – but not Rottweilers!’ and then they come in and see all these lovely Rotties and German Shepherds and dogs of all different breeds thriving. We know it can be hard taking the first step on a new path, but there is so much support waiting for you. 

Short, effective training sessions are all you will find in Scentventure. Research suggests that training 2-3 times per week is as effective as training every day so we account for that too.

We teach long-term calm, behaviour that is foolproof; meaning it becomes automatic and you’ll be doing it automatically without having to think about it. It just becomes second nature.

And because we take the Calm-First approach, you will create a dog who is calmer in ALL areas of life so you will be addressing more than one problem area at once, saving you more precious time.

New members are relieved when they realise that long arduous training sessions are not only not required – but not advised!
