Here are some suggestions for classes:
SCENT WORK PART 1
A dog’s nose is always working, so why not use this as an opportunity to exercise and bond with your dog? This two-part class will help develop your dog’s natural scenting ability. Your dog will learn to focus on a particular scent, find the source of that scent, and then alert you when he has found it. As your dog’s handler you will learn to observe your dog, paying close attention to his body language and other visual cues. Six week course. Limit six dogs. Cost $300/dog with $100 deposit to reserve spot.
FETCH & RETRIEVAL
Does your dog lack interest in fetching? This class focuses on teaching the dog to retrieve various objects. Dogs will learn to take items from the owner’s hand, hold the items, move with the items, and then release the item to the owner when prompted. All parts of the class will be taught on leash. Distractions will be added as the class progresses in order to teach the dog to take and hold items in real world situations. Six week course. Limit six dogs. Cost $300/dog with $100 deposit to reserve spot.
