Is your Dog reactive on leash? 

This class will help introduce dogs on leash and work on decreasing distance while remaining calm. We will work on quiet and manners near other dogs, starting with one dog at a time and do slow introductions. You will learn how to give an appropriate correction and build on threshold of excitement. Muzzles are not required but you may use one if you feel safer. 

Beginning Nose Work

Are you looking for a fun activity for your dog that taps into their natural drive and instinct?  K9 Nose Work™ is just that activity!

In our Beginning Nose Work class, dogs will be introduced to the concept of hunting for their primary reward, either food treats or toys - first in cardboard boxes, then around a room, outside and eventually on a vehicle.  In this 1.5 hour class, each dog takes its turn independent of the other dogs in the class, so K9 Nose Work™ is ideal even for dogs that don't care to be around other dogs.  When the dogs aren't taking their turn, they will be resting in their own vehicles. 

Handlers/Dog Parents will begin to learn & observe their dog's behavior while they search and also how to handle a long leash while the dog works.  K9 Nose Work™ is a blast!  Come join the fun!

AKC Farm Dog Judging
& Farm Dog Certification Training

The AKC is dedicated to upholding the integrity of its Registry, promoting the sport of purebred dogs, and breeding for type & function. 

The Farm Dog certified test assesses whether a dog as the capability to perform as a confident working partner on a farm.  The test presents the dog with situations that would be typical for a farm environment.  The dog must demonstrate self-control, courage and trust in the handler. 

 

The Farm Dog Certified program provides an opportunity for all dogs to apply their basic training in a novel environment, demonstrating their natural capability and trainability to work in partnership with their human companions.
