Classes
From puppies to adult dogs, we have classes for every stage of your dog's life.  We offer a variety of foundation classes for the family dog, unique dog sports for active dogs and competition classes for owners who are seeking the ultimate challenge in canine teamwork.  With limited class sizes, all our programs are designed to help dogs learn in a fun, positive environment without an abundance of distractions, and every dog and handler team will have plenty of one-on-one instruction.   We create fun, structured classes so dogs are more relaxed, more willing to learn, and the lessons will stick with them as a positive experience and become a lifestyle habit.  After all, our goal is to teach your dog how to be your "best dog ever"!

         CANINE  SCENT WORK ​$145/ 7 weeks

Dogs have amazing noses!  Want to teach your dog a new activity which doesn't require lots of space and equipment?  Your dog already knows how to use his nose, now let's teach him to use it to find specific odors.   The sport of Canine Scent Work is inspired by Working Detection Dogs who are specially trained to find drugs, explosives or even cancer cells.  This training activity develops your dog’s natural scenting abilities through fun and games.  Scent work helps to improve communication between you and your dog, engages them in a stimulating activity, and helps to build confidence and focus.   Your dog will learn to located specific odors hidden in containers, room interiors, building exteriors and vehicle exteriors.  Not all scent work (also called Nose Work) classes are created equally.  We will teach your dog how to begin locating a specific odor (birch) on the very first day of class.  

    CANINE CORE CONDITIONING $15/session

Keep your dog fit in mind and body!  If your dog is headed for a career in agility, dock diving, fly ball or just going along on your mountain hikes, he will benefit from this class.  We utilize equipment such as a specialized canine treadmill, wobble boards, elevated planks and inflatable discs to teach dogs body awareness, helping them to stengthen their core in a fun and healthy way.  This class will help to build confidence while teaching manners, focus, balance and even teaching your dog "how to learn" setting the stage for success.  Your dog will thank you for having such a fun and creative way to burn off some of his energy in a healthy way!  Canine Core is also a great choice for dogs in need of a bit of weight loss and to dogs recovering from injuries.
