Our Services

Consulting and design

We provide consultation on projects related to the use of dogs’ sense of smell, no matter what size. Our consultant has amassed 7 years of experience working with dogs on the scent of mould and bedbugs, as well as doing scientific research on the scent of cancer and Covid-19.


Smart technology for dog training

We engineer and develop smart devices for odour separation training. We have designed and patented interactive training devices for dogs: a scent bot with treat dispenser and cell phone application, and a sample-holding track equipped with smart technology.


Products for odour separation training

We sell basic equipment for dog odour training, such as sample-holding tracks, jars, and ready-to-use scents. We sell complete starter sets to get your dog started on nose work. The track was designed by Susanna Paavilainen specifically for odour separation and is manufactured in Finland. 


Covid-19 Scent testing – pilot project at Helsinki-Vantaa airport

Our company launched the first Covid-19 scent test in Europe at Helsinki-Vantaa airport in September 2020. The project has been realised in cooperation with scent detection association Wise Nose and with the University of Helsinki.
