Discover the Einstein at the end of your leash! Our Life Skills class will help you learn the skills to have a better-behaved dog at home and in public. These classes are for dogs of all ages - pups too!

(This 7-week course will introduce Hide & Scent Work into our Life Skills Class).

Here is what you'll learn:
- How to keep his 4 paws on the ground (no more jumping on visitors!)
- How to share a toy
- How to teach games like retrieve
- Demonstrate the ability to wait nicely in a sit for a few moments building to a few minutes
- Getting your dog to come to his name and to a whistle
- Walk on a loose leash with mild to heavier distractions
- Demonstrate the ability to 'leave it' momentarily when something fun or tasty drops to the floor or the ground in front of him or her
- Teach commands like sit, and down and how to do this in your everyday life
- Build some self-control and focus by watching the handler
- Have better car manners

Learn more than you thought your dog could do! We encourage everyone in the family to participate. Indoor and heated.

Hide & Scent Work:
Hide & Scent class is basically playing games that challenge your dog's sense of smell and using your dog's natural scenting abilities.

It starts as an easy game then the challenges become more and more complicated.

Your dog will be asked to differentiate between different smells, navigate obstacles, and solve complicated puzzles to find her prize.

Dogs, like children, need games to burn off energy and to just have a bit of fun! Your dog may not enjoy basic dog training because it involves activities he doesn't necessarily want to do – like hold still while you walk away, or sit and lie down over and over.
