In Pam Mackinnon time as a Royal Air Force trained drug detector dog handler for HM Customs & Excise Pam adored the teamwork between her and her dog. The pure joy of working together for a common purpose was magical. They searched everything from planes to cars, postal depots to houses, oil rigs to ships. They worked at many airports including Heathrow and Glasgow, ferry terminals at Dover and Stranraer plus docks at Liverpool, Hull and Greenock, and even caves and islands off the West Coast of Scotland. A few years ago she started introducing scentwork in her dog training classes. Much to her delight owners and dogs loved it as much as she did. The demand for pet dog scentwork has exploded since those early days, hence the formation of Talking Dogs Scentwork® in 2011.
