The United Kingdom College of Scent Dogs (UKCSD) canine training institution is committed to the successful instruction and accreditation of dogs and handlers in many aspects of canine scent detection.
No matter your field, we have the experience and knowledge to take your training to an exciting new level. The combination of, over one-hundred years of proven operational police dog search experience, and the highest academic qualifications, make the UKCSD a totally unique scent detection dog training establishment.
We are the only scent detection dog training establishment that offer City and Guilds approved credentials, giving you the confidence that your scent detection training is of the highest quality. We are proud to have been assessed and supported by the most well recognised, and respected, learning and skills providers in the UK.
With evidence-based techniques and methods directly informed by the science of canine behaviour, underpinned by the highest academic qualifications the UKCSD will support you along your scent-detection training journey.
We combine our academic expertise and operational experience to focus on methods that really work. Eliminating those that are out dated and based on 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.
As signatory members of the UK Canine Training and Behaviour Charter we ensure that, all dogs and ‘their humans’ trained by the UKCSD will be treated humanely and respectfully, as in accordance with our strict ethical code.
Here at the UKCSD, we believe our services are an investment that will pay for itself over time. By introducing new exciting training methods and techniques, we will empower the student to create and deliver the highest quality scent detection training to their classes and students.
Together, we can ignite your dogs ‘seeking system’, giving them the cognitive enhancement and emotional well-being, they so rightly deserve.
