Smart Nose (our Name for Nosework!) This is a sniff class and teaches your dog how to use their nose and find things. We will start with cookie/goodie finds and move to odor scent training. We will start simple with the odor Birch and move on to Anise and Cloves. We train in a similar manner to those used for drug and bomb sniffing dogs. Most dogs excel at this and it is fun for them! Easy class for older folks too as the dog does most of the work. It is a fun and useful class that helps give your dog some brain games when weather is inclement or you don't feel like going out. Where the dog goes from here is up to you. You can compete in several venues or....Maybe even find the missing cell phone or lost key chain somewhere in the future or find a hiding adult or child as a game! Great class for bored dogs! Impress your friends and relatives! Any dog can play these games not just scent dogs.Great class for reactive dogs as only one dog works at a time. So come on down and join the fun! We look forward to meeting you! Cost includes beginning scent and tin.
Fetch Class -- Teach your dog to willingly pick up whatever you ask for, bring it without chewing on it, and release it to your hand. This class teaches working (not thrown) retrieves - for fun, useful daily help ("bring my slippers," "bring the TV remote"), and the basic skills needed for training obedience competition retrieves.We will work with items of many different textures, materials, and weights/sizes. This class is both for dogs who’ve never retrieved and for those who like to play-retrieve but don’t always bring the ball/stick/toy back. Dogs of all ages, breeds, and mixes are welcome. Dog must be able to focus his/her attention on handler (to a reasonable degree) when near other dogs and people.
