Therapy/CGC Prep

Not to be confused with service dogs, therapy dogs are used to help comfort those in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and more. The most important thing about a therapy dog is his behavior: is he friendly with people and other dogs? Does he welcome attention from adults and children? Will he react if someone makes a loud noise? These are all skills your dog will need to be a CGC and/or a therapy dog! Our 6 week prep class will help you polish your dog's skills so you're ready to pass your certification. You can learn more about the AKC's Canine Good Citizen program here.

Nosework

Nosework is a fun and fast growing sport where dogs search for essential oil, similar to drug or bomb detection dogs. Because nosework relies on a dog's instinct to smell, it's a great confidence booster! It's a sport for ALL dogs and especially ideal for dogs needing more confidence, injured dogs, and senior dogs.

Our introductory class focuses on odor recognition, finding & staying at the source, and handler cues.

Prerequisite:

Completion of Basic Manners or instructor approval

Price:

$165 for a six-week class that meets for 50 minutes, once a week. Price also includes introductory odors & containers.
