PRIVATE CLASSES  –  Limited Private Baby Puppy Classes offered (under 7 months)

Private/Semiprivate puppy classes are designed for puppies.  Classes start with no distractions to build the puppies reliability to commands.  We increase distractions as they progress.  This is a stepping stone to attending a larger puppy classes to build on attention during lots of distractions.

If your dog is past the baby puppy stage and you live locally the Muskoka District Kennel Club offers a variety of classes from Obedience Level 1 & 2, Rally Obedience and Agility.

 

SCENT GAMES -Currently suspended due to too many tasks and not enough interest.

Sporting Detection Dog Association has listing of offered classes in different areas they also offer events to title your dog.

We offer beginner and advanced classes in scent detection.  Dogs enjoy finding the target using their nose.  They will be introduced to boxes one of which has a reward.  Dogs will get two runs of three tries per class.  Classes are offered to all dogs be they puppies or seniors.  Dogs are kept separate and run individually so dogs that have issues are welcome.

Handlers are passengers in this game of search, as we like to say It’s all about your Dog!
