Puppy Socialization - Drop In

Sundays @ 3:30 PM

This class is for puppies under 17 weeks. Puppy Socialization is so important! In this session we give students the opportunity to socialize puppies with other puppies of the same age. We cover topics such as puppy nipping, potty training, nail trims, grooming, jumping prevention, come when called and leash walking and more! We believe the best thing about raising your own puppy is creating the foundation to a lifelong friendship together, but we know how rough that first year can be. Think of this as your puppy owner’s support group!

Your puppy’s critical socialization period closes at 16 weeks, so don’t hesitate to get started. 

 

Nose Work Games - Drop In 

Sundays @ 1:30 PM

What is Nose Work? According to Wikipedia "

Nosework is a dog sport sport created to mimic professional detection dog tasks. One dog and one handler form a team. The dogs must find a hidden target odor, often ignoring distractors (such as food or toys), and alert the handler. After the dog finds the odor they are rewarded with food or a toy.”  Nosework is a fantastic way to learn together and build trust in a partnership with your dog. 

 

First we teach our dogs what a search is, then progress to problem solving and then we move on to finding a target odor.  Nose Work can be a fun way to give your dog a job, get them thinking and help them learn to build confidence and focus on one task at a time. Sensitive dogs thrive, and confident dogs learn to slow down and solve the puzzles. 

 

This class is “Seminar Style” meaning dogs need to be crated or left in your vehicle while other dog-handler teams have their turns.

Dogs need to be confident eating or engaging with a toy in public to enjoy this class. If you’re not there yet, contact us today.
