Puppy classes are a great way to get the new addition to your family started off on the right paw. We offer Puppy Kindergarten and Puppy Agility classes.
Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can’t touch the dog or the obstacles. The handler’s controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals. AKC and UKC obstacles will be taught.
The dog and handler will learn a variety of skills based on the Greg Darrett handling system. All AKC and UKC obstacles are taught such as contacts, jumps, tunnels, sway bridge, swing plank and weave poles. We offer 5 different levels of Agility classes.
Basic obedience classes teach you foundation skills such as walk on a loose leash, sit, lie down, coming when called, and stay.
Competition obedience classes are for those interested in competing with their dog or taking their obedience to the next level. You will learn how to perfect both the stationary and moving heel positions, recalls, fronts and finishes and the figure eight. You will focus on handling skills and knowledge of the rules in the competition ring.
Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler completes a course consisting of various signs of obedience training maneuvers. Rally will prepare the dog and handler to advance to upper level obedience or agility.
What is the Canine Good Citizen Test? The Canine Good Citizen test is an evaluation established by the American Kennel Club. It is an evaluation for both a dog and his or her owner. Owners must be able to handle their dog well, while the dog must behave in an appropriate manner as he or she is tested in a variety of circumstances and environments. Those who pass the Canine Good Citizen Test earn a certificate showing they passed. Some dogs may even continue training to become therapy dogs.
What is the SPOT Test? The United Kennel Club offers owners a chance to prove that their dog is a well-behaved asset to their community by completing a series of exercises that demonstrate these valuable and necessary skills. The SPOT program consists of 10 separate testing stations. These exercises are used to demonstrate that the dog is capable of exhibiting desired behaviors that the general public would expect to see in a well behaved dog. The dog will receive a rating at each station, varying from “Outstanding” to “Needs Practice”. Training for the SPOT test can begin as early as you would like to start training your dog.
The sport of canine Nosework is growing in popularity across the country. It was inspired by military and police working scent detection dogs. The dogs search for the scented oils of birch, anise, clove, myrrh, and vetiver.
There are 5 levels and 4 element searches; container, vehicle, interior and exterior searches in the UKC program. AKC offers 4 levels and a buried search instead of vehicles.
Conformation is where your dog is judged against the standard for the breed.
We offer beginner and advanced handling classes. These are drop-in classes. No need to register in advance.
Proper handling is key in showing off your dog’s best qualities. It truly is a team effort.
