Tricks

Is your dog bored? Does he/she need a mental challenge? Are you sick of the boring everyday walks? Fear no more! This class is geared towards giving your dog the mental stimulation he craves. Your pooch will go home tired as could be! Great for those chilly days. This class will be all about fun. I will show you how your dog’s mind works and surprise you with the tricks they will come up with all on their own. We will be doing games, tricks, and shaping challenges. This is a special, easy going, fun class you wont want to miss out! All you will need is a dog, a leash, some yummy treats, and an open mind. I will provide the fun and laughter. Space is limited! No pre requisites. (Because safety is always my number one concern the only rule is that your dog must be friendly towards other dogs.)

Scent Level 1

Are you looking for a positive way to tap into your dog’s natural instincts? Join our beginners nosework class to put your dog’s nose, mind, and body to work. This course will guide you through teaching your dog to hunt for tasty treats as they interact with a variety of environments and objects. As a handler, you will learn how to set up and perform searches and how to gradually challenge your dog as they master the art of the hunt. Nosework is the sport for every dog, from younger pups to older, active to disabled, and nervous to outgoing. A few benefits of scent work include the calming effect of continuous inhales and exhales during the search, confidence building as they find hidden treats, and for you, a bond with your now sleepy, fulfilled pup. Please note, this class is currently only open to dogs that are friendly and non reactive towards other dogs and strangers.

  • Your dog should  wear a back clip harness
  • 6’ nylon, canvas or leather leash. No chained leashes or Flexi-leads please!
  •  Please bring a long line-10-15 ft is great.

Scent Level 2

Prerequisite: Scentsational Nosework Level 1. Have you ever wondered how dogs are trained to sniff out cancer, bombs, and drugs? Searching for food is one thing, but how do we get dogs to search for items that they wouldn’t naturally seek out? Scentsational Nosework Level 2 will guide you through the process of getting your dog to recognize Birch Oil hidden in various different ways. While this is not a competition preparation class, the techniques taught are similar to that of the ones used for professional detection dogs. If you are looking to level up from searching for food, join our Scentsational Nosework Level 2 class!

level 3 AKC CGC

This is for any graduates of my level 2 classes. The goal of this class is to prepare all students for AKC’s CGC exam. The graduation will be the date of their exam. The weeks leading up to graduation will be in preparation for the exam. If the dogs obtain their CGC they will be able to work towards becoming a therapy dog and will be able to visit nursing homes and such. Because this class will be working on self control, we will not be having off leash play time. It’s all about business!
