Your Presenter – Dr. Robert Hewings & Karen Caton Hewings


Dr. Rob and Karen are the driving force behind the College of Scent Dogs. Together, they bring a unique combination of proven operational canine scent detection training experience underpinned by outstanding academic qualifications.

Both Rob and Karen have served with London’s Metropolitan Police, each retiring after 30 years of exemplary service—that’s 60 years of operational experience to share with you.

Rob is also an operational police dog handler with 20 years of specialized canine training, and spent the final 10 years of his service as a full-time police dog trainer. In his quest to gain more knowledge in his field, Rob engaged on a learning journey that spanned 10 years, ending in a doctorate of professional practice scent detection dog training. He is the award-winning author of Scent Training for Every Dog and will soon be releasing his second book, Tracking for Every Dog.

Karen is the college’s most experienced and operationally proven team member, being an accomplished specialist search dog trainer working within the explosive search environment both in the United Kingdom and abroad. Karen has planned and developed both national and international training exercises. She has organized joint working practices between the police, military, prison service, Britain’s Ministry of Defense and the private security sector.

Having worked within the counterterrorism area of policing, Karen has hands-on experience dealing with the aftermath of terror attacks, and as a licensed search dog handler has spent many years protecting the royal family, the British government and its property, and high-level security requirements in and around London.
