Dog Training
  1. Manners class
    Canine Manners Class: This is the foundational Manners class. If you want to have the kind of dog you can take in public and be a proud parent this is how you get started towards that goal.
  2. Manners 2, 3, and 4
    Take the basics and improve on them Manners 2 earn your AKC CGC Manners 3 Work off leash, get the focus you want. Manners 4 take the manners outside and downtown and earn your CGCA
  3. Therapy dog
    Any dog lover can testify to this truth and science backs it up with ample evidence. By their companionship alone, dogs reduce our blood pressure, slow our heart rates, accelerate healing, and provide immeasurable comfort. We want to bring the healing effect of dogs’ unconditional love into the lives of more people.

 Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found. Detection is done in a variety of environments and often during changing conditions.
Scent Work is a positive, challenging activity that allows dogs the opportunity to use their strongest natural sense in a way that is fun, engaging, and that builds and strengthens a foundation of trust between the handler and dog.
