Do you want to learn Professional Scent Detection?


What would it mean to you to be able to overcome any problem while training any dog in detection?


Scent detection is the fastest growing area in Professional Dog Training, and it is the future for Professional Dog Trainers.


This revolutionary hybrid training system will not only dramatically deepen your understanding, but it will improve your dog training skills.

That will also make for extremely confident, focused detection dogs.


This scent detection system is part of my “Straight Line System” as it eliminates all errors on the trainers/handlers behalf making it a smooth and an almost effortless learning curve.

  • That is free of long-winded explanations

  • No confusing industry jargon or terminology


These seminars are designed to give you a real inside perspective at the most modern detection training model available anywhere in the world.


Sidney's wealth of experience and constant drive to increase his knowledge is complemented by his interest to continue the growth of the industry worldwide. For this reason, I am very excited to see where his journey is heading and keep learning from Sidney, as the world will benefit from all that he has to share.

  • An in depth comparison between traditional detection methods and this system

My seminars are a prelude to Government certified Substance detection courses that will be conducted later this year.

I went to Sidney after my wife googled him. Beau, our rescue 5 year old Border Collie X was diagnosed by the shelter as being deaf. Sid after 2 minutes put that theory to bed. We had one dog that had been taught to disregard all noises/sound. As he was misdiagnosed as being deaf, we had no history of any prior training. Sid has now prepared a dog for our family that has good 
obedience skills and seems a happier dog for it. Thanks Sid!
