The United Kingdom College of Scent Detection (UKCSD) canine training institution is committed to the successful instruction and accreditation of dogs and handlers in many aspects of canine scent-work.
Why should scent detection training be the preserve of the specialist? With the UKCSD it is open to all! With our fun and super-exciting pet-dog scent courses you and your dog (even your business) can benefit from our techniques and methods directly informed by the science of canine behaviour and training. Combine this with evidence from our extensive specialist experience, you have a winning combination.
With over fifty years’ collective experience in the operational police dog environment within the London Metropolitan Police as well as the highest academic credentials, UKCSD is committed to
ethical training practices that are always positive, creating the best possible learning environment for you and your dog
We combine our academic expertise and operational experience to focus on methods that really work. By eliminating those that are out dated and based in nothing more than tradition, we focus on techniques that have actual basis in scientific theory and have been tried, tested and found to be effective.
All dogs trained by the UKCSD will be treated humanely and ethically. We only use positive and force free methodologies and any equipment used will be subject to strict safety checks, any canine training aids that do not meet these exacting standards are banned from use at the college (Electric collars, pinch collars, check chains and slip leads are prohibited). The welfare of the animals in our care is a top priority at all times.
Here at the UKCSD, we believe our services are an investment that will pay for itself over time. By introducing you to new methodologies and techniques, we empower trainers to create the best training environment in their own facilities as well as become more confident in their own abilities and skills.
