Practice navigating side by side with your dog throughout an obedience course. You will learn crucial concepts on how to make walking nicely on, or off leash enjoyable for both human and canine, as well as practicing other obedience skills in the mix!
6 weeks / $100

INTRO TO NOSEWORK
In this class we will instill in the dog a desire to search for something we want them to find and an ability to communicate to us that they have found it, knowing that there is a great reward at the end of that search.
Nose work is a great skill to build dog's confidence, reduce environmental sensitivity and provide mental and physical exercise through teamwork with the handler.
6 weeks / $125 (some nosework supplies for practice at home is included)  

TRAINER TIPS & TRICKS
You choose what skills you want to practice or get help with during your sessions. There will be rotations of one dog out at a time, the others in a crate or on place.
