CLASSES

Puppy I Class: 
For puppies eight weeks to five months old.  Have you heard that you shouldn’t begin training your puppy until they’re older (6 months to a year)? Well this is a myth and will only create more problems for you to fix down the line.  Within this 7 week obedience class, we will address loose leash walking, sit/stay, down/stay, come, and a place command (meaning get to a dog bed, lay down and stay there). We will also address any behavioral issues that go along with puppy-hood; potty training, chewing, biting, proper socialization, etc.

Cost: $200 total ($20 discount for rescue dogs with proper verification) and payment is due at the time of booking.  Full refunds will be provided for cancellations given at least 7 days prior to the class start date.

This class will be based on what people would like to specifically work on, as well as learning a set of specific new commands; sit/down in motion, precision heeling, long sit/down stays with distractions, retrieves, jumps, etc.

Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Therapy Dog Class:
There is no age requirement but it is recommended that your dog has passed through Beginner Obedience as this will make the class less-stressful and more fun for you and your canine companion.  This class will prepare you and your dog for the Canine Good Citizen test.  The CGC test is a 10 part test that proves your dog is safe in the community, around people and other dogs. Some of the exercises involved include: greeting a friendly stranger, sitting politely for a petting, walking on a loose leash through a crowd of people, being okay with another dog, and coming when called. This is a pass or fail test that can be taken multiple times. This test is meant to be fun for you and your dog and we strive to make sure all of our clients pass!  Other topics will include items from the Therapy Dog International (TDI) national sanctioned therapy dog test.  The Canine Good Citizen test will be administered on the last day of class.

Cost: $220 total ($20 discount for rescue dogs with proper verification) and payment is due at the time of booking.  Full refunds will be provided for cancellations given at least 7 days prior to the class start date.

Scent Discrimination:
No age requirement for this class. Young puppies welcome! Does your dog love to use their nose? Does your dog love to play ball? Why not let your pup use his/her nose to smell out specific scents. In this class we will introduce the basics of scent detection with your dog.  Nose work is teaching your dog to use their nose to sniff out different scents. We will teach your dog how to indicate to you where a particular scent is hidden. What we will start off on is teaching the basics principles of nose work using 3 main scents: clove, anise, and birch. As we go along in class we can also discuss teaching your dog how to use their nose to benefit you. We can teach your dog how to find your lost cell phone or keys, or even help you get a jump-start on your hunting dog.  This is meant to be a fun class for you and your dog. Any kind of training with your dog is a good bonding activity. Why not teach your dog something impressive that will help teach them focus and confidence? This also provides your dog with a mental and physical challenge to try and conquer.  **There is a limit of 6 dogs to each session.

Cost: $220 total ($20 discount for rescue dogs with proper verification) and payment is due at the time of booking.  Full refunds will be provided for cancellations given at least 7 days prior to the class start date.

Trick Class:
This class will go over basic tricks such as; give paw, roll over, retrieves, play dead etc.  This class is open to your suggestions and what you would like to teach your dog. For example, my dog knows a few quirky tricks. She will bark on command if I say “zombies”. If I say “boing” she will jump and leap into the air.

Cost: $200 total ($20 discount for rescue dogs with proper verification) and payment is due at the time of booking.  Full refunds will be provided for cancellations given at least 7 days prior to the class start date.
