If you think dog tricks are all about jumping through hoops or playing dead, you don’t know our dogs! Our tricks classes are based on the Do More With Your Dog and AKC Trick Dog programs. Tricks are a wonderful bonding activity for owner and dog as well as good mental stimulation for the dog. Learn tricks for fun or work towards different levels of titles. Everyone, even the dog, takes a bow at the end of these classes.
Sort of like canine nose work, but not. Fun fur Noses is designed to allow dogs to use their nose to find hidden treats or toys. This is not a typical class of taking turns and using the same set up. While there may be more than one dog in the space, each dog has their own defined area to work in. You and your dog have access to various objects to arrange as you desire and hide treats within. To keep it interesting, different objects will be available each week with ideas on how to use them. While someone will always be available to help, you will be working your dog and arranging your space. Of course, you may also join a friend and work together. Please supply your own treats or we have them available for purchase in the boutique. Dogs must remain on leash and crates will be provided.
*This environment may not be appropriate for dogs who are reactive to others. Please call and chat with us if you have any questions regarding your dogs behavior.*
Specifically for our grey muzzle friends, this class offers mental stimulation for our senior dogs who may not be able to physically get out as much as they used to. Enrichments will vary, ranging from puzzle toys and treat searches to scent boxes and easily navigated physical obstacles.
This is NOT considered physical therapy. If you are unsure about your dogs ability to participate, please consult your veterinarian.
From time to time we will offer training and seminars on specific needs or fun topics. Keep checking back for what’s new!
Leash pulling and heeling seminar – date TBD
Pulling on the leash and erratic walking is a common issue. This seminar will focus on techniques to reduce leash pulling and ways of having a more controlled walk when necessary.
Kids and Kanines – date TBD
Kids and dogs can be the best of friends. However, sometimes young ones do not fully understand that dogs speak a slightly different language then we do. This seminar will help children understand doggy body language and how to act around dogs they know and dogs they do not know.
Continuous classes are held every week and are designed to allow anyone to start at any time (preregistration may be required. Please check if you are unsure).
Session classes are a 6 week session with a break before the start of a new 6 week session. The sessions can still be started at any time. However there may be a break before you finish all 6 weeks.
