Club Dogwood is giving the families of reactive & easily distracted dogs the freedom and confidence to enjoy calm canine behaviour & stress free walks, without spending a fortune on in-person behaviourists.

How was your last dog walk?

Was it relaxing? Was it easy? Was your dog calmly sniffing on a loose lead or exploring off lead, checking in with you, coming back when you called them? Were they listening to you, focusing on you when you needed them to, passing dogs and people calmly and doing what you asked?

Or were they ignoring you? Pulling on the lead? Barking and lunging at other dogs or people? Were they showing you up again? Having meltdowns? Was their energy… just… exhausting?

You're not alone.

We’ve found that the most common reasons why dog owners suffer from stressful walks are:

  1. Not having enough or the right up-to-date knowledge about dogs including underestimating the role that stress and calmness plays in canine behaviour.
  2. Not having a range of practical dog training skills yet.
  3. Trying to train dogs in the wrong situations. They’re too stressed, too excited, to over-aroused and so they’re not able to learn.
  4. Misdiagnosis of the problem e.g. mistaking anxiety for excitement, confusion for stubbornness… which means they go off in the wrong direction with their training.
  5. Feeling overwhelmed and under confident – sometimes even paralysed by the masses of information out there.
  6. Feeling disconnected from their dog/not feeling a sense of purpose in the relationship outside of dog walks and fixing problems.

The consequences of these mistakes are:

You’re worried...

You’re worried you look like a bad dog owner, scared your dog will cause a scene and dreading the moment they show you up again.

Getting through the walk without a meltdown is the best you can aim for right now, and closing the door when you get home is a relief… until you have to do it all over again.

You feel trapped...

Your dog puts serious limitations on your life, your family’s lives.

And you just think, is this my life now? Will I always feel trapped and miserable for the next what… 5, 10, 15 years? Your dog’s walks get shorter, less exciting, they’re bored, unfulfilled… so you’re constantly riddled with guilt.

Club Dogwood training prevents these mistakes and offers a full and complete solution to the problems of reactivity, overexcitement and aggression.

It all starts with the SAVE OUR SUMMER course.

Save Our Summer is an interactive course 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. 

With the 3 Ps: Planning, Preparation & Practice you’ll have practical dog training skills to start using straight away on your everyday dog walks AND the absolute crucial knowledge you need for keeping your dog calm anywhere. Our team of friendly, experienced dog trainers and behaviourists will guide you every step of the way. 

The Save Our Summer course combines quick wins with big-picture strategies that make your life easier TODAY while systematically building long lasting results for TOMORROW.

Starting Friday 3rd March!

This is how we do it

1. Strategy Call

You’ll be invited to book a one-to-one private Summer Strategy session (call, Zoom or email) where we’ll go deep into your goals and what you’re struggling with so you leave with a simple, actionable plan to start transforming your dog’s behaviour. Dare to dream and start looking forward to fun, freedom and adventure. Designed to get you moving FAST! 

AND! If you join before 10am 4th March, we’re giving you a FREE follow up session. Ask us anything – twice!

2. Proven Path

Perfectly structured modules and lessons with step-by-step guides so you can easily follow along at home and out on your everyday walks – even if you’re brand new to dog training. Take control and follow a clear path forward.

‘’The vast library of courses give 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.’’

-Emma & Harry

3. Ongoing Support

It’s all easily-accessible online, but this is not one of those virtual courses 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. We’re doing the course together, live. You’ll have REAL dog trainers giving you PERSONALISED advice about YOUR dog every step of the way. It’s the next level of support rarely seen online.

‘’Access to Scentventure Guides every day of the week means any questions or concerns can be answered very quickly and plans put in place to reach your goals.’’

Danielle & Tillie

4. Live Training

Twice per month we meet on Zoom to dive deeper into topics that are unique to reactive and easily distracted dogs and you can ask all your questions live.

‘’The live Zooms with experts help you understand the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’, and also bring different perspectives to the Club.’’

Emma & Buster

5. Connect the Compass

The dog, the whole dog and everything about the dog. Club Dogwood is for navigating every area of life with your dog. When you have a connected relationship with your dog, training becomes easier and anything is possible.

‘’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.’’

-Lucy & Bo

6. Community

The most crucial factor in your success will be the people you share it with. We know that it can feel lonely when you’re 100% responsible for a dog with behavioural issues. That’s why we’ve created THE most fun, friendly and supportive private community you could wish to find! 

You’re not doing this on your own any more! Come on in and say hello to your new support network.

‘’I used to feel very isolated and on my own with the issues with my dogs. But now I really feel part of something. It’s a nice feeling to speak to people who are passionate about their dogs as you are but wanting to work to make their relationship and lives better for them and their dogs.’’

-Anna & the gang

Hi, I’m Katie…

I help the families of reactive and easily distracted dogs LOVE walking their dogs again.

My own reactive 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. It was so sad that he had to miss out on all the fun, adventure and freedom that I saw other people enjoying with their dogs.

This training gave me back my freedom. I founded the online training community Club Dogwood and designed the Save Our Summer course so everyone can have the same relaxing adventures that Lao and I enjoyed.

I don’t believe anyone should put up with stressful walks or carry the constant that their dog is unfulfilled and miserable, and so I’m on a mission to have dog owners experience the difference between just trying to get through the next dog walk without a big embarrassing meltdown and actually feeling excited for their next adventure together.

In my 12 year career at Dogs Trust I travelled across London and the North of England providing training, behaviour, enrichment, health and legal advice to hundreds of dog owners every week an developed new campaigns for responsible dog ownership, including the successful campaign to parliament for compulsory microchipping.

Now I’m fortunate enough to serve an international community of dog owners enjoying fun, freedom and adventure all over the world, and thousands more who visit my dog adventure playgrounds, and thousand more that visit the playgrounds I’ve helped set up via my consultancy service.

In the Save Our Summer course we take a 'calm-first' approach to tackling training and behavioural problems.

This means:

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.

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 started on the right path. 

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

Take Club Dogwood member Ronja…

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 with Roxy. 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 bakery 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 two days into working with us, Dawn reported that Rosie was chilling on the sofa rather than leaping all over people at the front door. Rosie’s calm confidence on walks began soaring too. Three days in, Dawn said,

I don’t know what is happening but I’m loving it!

Club Dogwood is empowering an international community of dog owners to enjoy calm canine behaviour and stress free dog walks.

The SAVE OUR SUMMER course inside Club Dogwood gives you a toolkit of skills to take your dog from pulling, lunging and barking to calm, focused and happy.

We’re taking you by the hand and guiding you through all of this beginning 3rd March.

“You are all amazing! I’ve been meaning to say that the price you charge versus the content and on tap advice is ridiculous when you compare it to the cost of a 1-2-1 session!”

– Sarah &  Willow

This is what our members say…

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.

Your dog’s behaviour can drive a wedge between you and your loved ones.

Things continue to get more tense at home. Nobody gets it. And they don’t want to come on walks with you and ‘the dog’ anymore, and if they do, you’re not in-the-moment with them because every last bit of your mental and physical energy goes into preventing your dog’s meltdowns… you’re 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.

''A year ago I was spending a lot of time in tears thinking my dream of dog ownership wasn’t panning out how I thought, with a reactive dog who I could barely let out in the garden let alone take out in public. From both of us being a ball of anxiety every time we stepped out, to knowing our limits, how to judge Stan’s comfort levels and how to restore calm if things get overstimulated. Plus knowing we are not alone and even if those unaware dog owners out there don’t get it, our amazing Scentventure friends always have our back!! Thanks to that confidence we now know Stan’s reactivity is mostly triggered by people/dogs walking towards us in narrow spaces, and he can very happily settle in a busy place in the right conditions. AND that in a group with other people and dogs he is much more chilled - even walking off lead for the first time in a non secure place with his friend a few weeks ago!!''
Jenny & Stan
‘’Her recall is better, she’s calmer, she’s more trusting of me and I’m more trusting of her. If she forgets herself, or I slip up, I now have the knowledge and confidence to turn a situation around to keep us both happy and safe. We will be forever grateful.’’
Sue & Lily

”Club Dogwood is absolutely worth the monthly investment! Not only do I have access to the expertise and support of Katie and the Scentventure Guides, which is invaluable in and of itself, but I also have access to a group of people who absolutely understand the challenges Jax and I face and celebrate the wins with us!”

Christie & Jax

There’s nothing to lose (except maybe your stressful walks) and EVERYTHING to gain!

For a small monthly investment, you’ll have the skills, strategy and support to enjoy relaxing walks.

Noooooo! People from all over the world are members of Club Dogwood. We’re an international community of Scentventure superstars applying the training at home and out on our local everyday walks. The beauty of the Club is that it’s not limited to location. 

People of all different skill and experience levels are enjoying results right now. It’s working for complete beginners or those who have been training a while. We’ll diagnose the problem and give you a clear plan that breaks everything down so you can easily follow along at home and out on your everyday walks – even if you’re brand new to dog training.

With face-to-face training you meet at a specific time in a specific place – and sod’s law means your dog is as good as gold when the trainer is there. Or they very quickly learn what to do when the trainer is there but when you try it ‘out in the wild’ it’s like they’ve forgotten their name. Real life problems happen in real life environments at any time of the day, rarely in class at 6pm every tuesday. In club dogwood you work on your dog’s true behaviour. In many ways it’s more real life than face to face training.

Consistency beats lengthy training sessions and research suggests that training 3 times per week is as effective as training every day. We account for that in our methodology. We teach long-term calm, focused behaviour that is foolproof; meaning it becomes automatic, second nature – so you don’t have to think about it constantly. It just becomes second nature.

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. 

Club Dogwood is so much more than an online course (though there are plenty of those inside). It’s a fully interactive dog training experience with expert trainers and behaviourists to guide you every step of the way. It’s fun, it’s friendship, it’s community, it’s belonging. You’re not doing this on your own anymore.

Our four-pawed members include chihuahuas and bulldogs, spaniels and mastiffs, cockapoos, labradoodles and crossbreeds, and everyone in between. Puppies get off to the best start in life, adult dogs thrive and elderly dogs grow old gracefully. Reactive dogs, anxious dogs, overexcitable dogs, lockdown dogs, rescue dogs – Scentventure is totally inclusive.

Regular check-ins and new themes each month keep things fresh and interesting, plus the accountability you need to stay on track. Members say Club Dogwood is so addictive that they want to check in regularly.

‘’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.’’

Ronja & the Tzus

“Joining Club Dogwood should be a requirement of dog ownership… and I’m only half joking!”
