Training

From NoseWork to puppy classes to Parkour, we embrace positive reinforcement methods because they are a kinder and more effective way to achieve results, teach obedience, and help your dog learn behaviors. Rather than traditional training, positive reinforcement training methods encourage your dog to offer behaviors without fear of retribution.

 

Training helps develop your dog’s innate abilities and helps you learn more about his personality and talents. If you want to understand your dog better and have a better relationship, check out our training offerings below!

K9 NoseWork

CLASS OFFERED QUARTERLY

Did you know 1/3 of a dog’s brain is dedicated to sorting out scents? NoseWork gives the dogs an opportunity to use these innate abilities! This is a fun sport that ANY dog can do. One Sheltie started NoseWork at age twelve!

 

There are two introductory classes, Introduction to NoseWork and Introduction to Odor.  Each class is six weeks in length and are required before moving on to the Advanced NoseWork class.

*these classes are for dogs 6 months and older

Online Courses

3 MONTH CLASSES, SELF-PACED

These classes cover the basic obedience skills from down stay to walking nicely on a leash. There are two levels of training for puppies and adult dogs. This is a fun way to work with your pup at your convenience.

*You have 3 months to complete this online course. After 3 months, the link to each online class will not be viewable 
 

How does this work? 

Each week you will receive a video with two new behaviors for your pup to work on.

All of our classes use positive reinforcement to encourage the development of desirable skills. We use these methods so that you and your dog have fun learning, because they are kinder, and because they are actually much more effective in teaching positive behaviors and discouraging undesirable behaviors than punitive training methods.

K9 Parkour

CLASS OFFERED YEARLY DURING THE SUMMER

If you think your dog is up to challenging, fun, physical activities in which they will learn to interact with their environment then this class is for you. Just like the human version of parkour where individuals move through their environment and conquer obstacles in their path, in this class your dog will work on ways to conquer obstacles too.

 

We will have lots of fun by using nature’s obstacles and everyday objects to learn to climb, balance, and jump. Some basic obedience knowledge is required. With a little adaptation and imagination, all breeds and ages can do this. You will be surprised at what you and your dog can achieve!
