You can attend class with or without your pup depending on their age (must have all vaccinations)

The Basics

This class is not only obedience, but behavioural training as well. We work on a number of things including basic commands and mastering the walk.  Another wonderful skill we will teach you is how to claim objects and space! No more baby gates!  We also throw in fun tricks and boredom busting brain games. Five or six months old is an excellent age to start training but in case you are wondering you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! This class is geared towards anyone with a dog, old dogs included. Everyone in your household is welcome to come to training.  Although small kids can be a big distraction, older kids are welcome to participate in the class once their parents have mastered the skills.

Dog’s Age: 5 months or older

5 consecutive classes @ 1h 15 min each

Nosework - Level One 

Nosework is basic scent detection training for your dog. It allows them to combine their amazing sense of smell with their love of performing a task. 

 

In the class, we teach the dogs to identify a specific scent, to locate the scent and then tell us that they have found it. As the dogs gain more experience, we ask them to be able to discriminate between different scents.

 

Any dog of any age can do Nosework. It is a low impact activity for both human and canine and is something that dogs love to do. We love it because using their nose requires a great deal of energy and effort from the dog which keeps them busy and tires them out. 

 

It is an especially good activity for dogs that are older, have mobility issues, are a bit shy or have not been socialized very well.

Dog’s Age: Any age including senior dogs or dog's that have mobility issues

Nosework - Level Two

In level 2 Nosework, we build upon what the dogs have learned in level 1. We solidify the basics, make the scenting tasks more challenging for them, include vehicle searches and may start to introduce an additional scent.
