A helping paw to find endangered animal species.

Poaching stinks. Let’s sniff it out.

A short leash for invasive plant species.

We train dogs to nose out specific plant species – a critical skill where disease or one invasive species can wreak havoc on the rest of the ecosystem.


We are an experienced, exciting and pioneering freelance consultancy that uses dogs to detect an assortment of scents in a variety of wildlife detection roles. Our professional and friendly service allows for a quicker, less invasive, more innovative way of wildlife searching for conservation, ecology and poaching prevention.

Building upon techniques from explosives and drug detection, we have pioneered ways to harness dogs’ remarkable sense of smell to protect biodiversity, ecology and wildlife. We train through reward, and focus on a great welfare experience for all our canine colleagues.

Wildlife detection dogs are fast, reliable and diverse. They cover vast areas and find scents far quicker than their human counterparts, providing an efficient, cost-effective and non-invasive way to gather high-quality conservation data.

It’s our mission to provide a wildlife detection service that is not only innovative but delivers real value for money. From supplying pre-trained dogs and handlers to bespoke training for your own project and full project management services, we are here to provide a total solution for your wildlife conservation needs.

As a professional freelance consultancy, we know that collaboration and trust are the ingredients of a successful relationship, and that trust is earned over more than a single engagement. We work in partnership with conservation groups, ecologists, universities, government agencies, NGOs, wildlife crime officers and private industry to deliver the only thing that matters — results.
