Welcome to UK College of Scent Detection

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.

No matter your field, we have the background and knowledge to take your training to a new level with techniques and methods directly informed by the science of canine behaviour and training combined with our collected evidence from our extensive experience.

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.

"Had an amazing 6 day course. Cannot recommend this course enough. The whole experience was mind blowing. Rob has a wealth of knowledge in the subject and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to learn from him. Everyone on the course was fantastic and the environment was very welcoming. If you want to learn from the best then get booked onto one of the courses, you will not find better."

"This study course was for me personally a way of complementing the Detection Dog Handler I did back in April. The course was even better than I though it would be and with the addition of the"free work" concept, it just got into another level. I recommend to anyone who wants to gather further knowledge about scent potential and lessons"

" Have you ever had those moments where you've evolved as a person? Either personally or professionally? For me, one of those moments was on the Scent-work Instructors course. This course was the best, but also the most challenging I have ever been on. It pushed my handling and my training skills to the limit. It was intense, but in a good way. The kind that you go home buzzing still thinking about it. "
