I wanted to let you all know about a fantastic course I am hosting which I think would benefit both you and your dogs. Come along and learn from one of the best in the field on how to utilise your dog's greatest asset, their nose!

Course information:

I am very excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to learn a fantastic range of fun and exciting skills with Rob Hewings (, a highly experienced Police dog handler and trainer.

Rob has a degree (and currently studying for a doctorate) in Canine Behaviour and Training and a masters in Professional Practice Police Dog Training. Rob lectures in seminars all around the UK and USA and is not only a great speaker but has a wealth of knowledge on the topic of nose work.

No previous experience needed and only suitable for dogs over 6 months of age of any (yes ANY) breed! Must be happy to sit in a hall with up to 7 other dogs.

This course will be held on the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of September 2017 at: Didmarton Village Hall, The Playing Field, The Street, Didmarton, Badminton, GL9 1DT

Over the course of the weekend you will learn about:

• How dogs ‘see’ using their nose.

• Practical applications of nose work for working dogs.

• Practical applications of nose work for your pet dog.

• Nose work for fun.

• Fun exercises to do at home.

• The importance of nose work ‘outlets’.

• How to teach your dog ‘detective’ skills!

Only 6 handler places and 12 spectator places available*.

Handler cost £145

Spectator £125*

* We appreciate that your dog may not cope in this environment and so anyone who attends the weekend as a spectator will be able to return at a discounted rate for a half day with myself ( and Ali Scott ( where we can have some fun with the dogs on an individual basis. This will be held in Oct/Nov time when it is cool enough to leave dogs in the car.

The course will run from 10-4pm with lunch, drinks and snacks provided. Registration will open at 9:30am on the Saturday.

Sarah Whitehead’s Inner Circle Conference will this year be held on Saturday 21st October, at Cookham in Berkshire, at the beautiful Moor Hall conference centre. 

Sarah will be joined on stage by two truly inspirational and thought-provoking speakers.  



The first of these is coming specially from the USA for the conference, and just one special Masterclass. Linda P. Case - author of the remarkable books ‘Dog Food Logic’ and ‘Beware the Straw Man’ is an independent and objective specialist in Canine/Feline Nutrition, and taught at the University of Illinois Animal Sciences Department and College of Veterinary Medicine. She is also a highly experienced behaviour and positive training specialist.

Linda will be talking on “Your Brain on Dog Food” - focusing on how we can distinguish between scientific, evidence-based information and the anecdotal evidence which is so pervasive in this arena. Delegates will have the opportunity to review, critically evaluate and support (or not) their own pet feeding beliefs during the talk, and you may find yourself surprised!

Linda has never been to the UK before, so this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to listen and learn from such a highly-respected force in her field.

Also joining us, we have the outstanding neuroscientist and founder of ‘Brighter Thinking’, Rachel Bamber. Rachel’s lecture will delve into ways that we can ‘de-clutter’ our own brains to reduce stress and anxiety in our working lives.

As dog trainers and behaviourists, the pressure to do right by our clients can become a little top-heavy at times, so Rachel’s inspiring talk will give us proven techniques we can apply immediately.
