Special Offerings

Throughout the year we periodically offer classes such as:

  • AKC Trick Dog & Trick Dog Test
  • Cooperative Play – Using play to build drive and connection between you and your dog, and control and modulate your dog’s arousal level when out and about.
  • Canine Enrichment 101 (6 weeks)  Learn about and engage your dog or puppy in enrichment opportunities for a better, more enriched life: Social (playtime), Occupational (games & puzzles), Physical (toy play), Sensory (olfactory, auditory, tactile, etc.), Nutritional (Ditch that bowl!)
    *Prerequisites: Puppy K (already graduated or currently enrolled in/signed up to start one in the future), BPO or Competition Obedience student.

  • Cooperative Care Class — Learn handling skills for caring for your dog all while giving them a say in the process. Do you have a dog that hates the vet or hates taking pills? Hates being groomed, bathed, or brushed? Do you want to make life easier for everyday tasks/animal care that you need to do with your dog/puppy? One word makes it possible: Consent. By letting your dog have a say (and teaching them how to), they become actively engaged & willing participants in their care.
    *Prerequisites: Puppy K (already graduated or currently enrolled in/signed up to start one in the future), BPO, Competition Obedience student.

  • Loose Leash Walking, Sniffari Walks, Hiking and more! (6 weeks)— Learn the hows and whys for different ways we can walk our dogs: loose leash walking, heeling, decompression/enrichment/sniffari walks, hikes (on or off leash), etc. Utilize safe leash handling skills & proper mechanics, reinforcement timing and placement techniques (where and when to give the reward) along with location specific reinforcement markers (where the reward will be located), along with the Premack Principle (if you do this you will get that) to provide your dog with the exercise and mental stimulation they need.
    *Prerequisites: Puppy K (already graduated or currently enrolled in/signed up to start one in the future), BPO, Competition Obedience student.
