Train and Play
In this program your dog will have the opportunity to learn and practice good play behaviours around other dogs and their owners. Play behaviours have important learning and health benefits that help dogs become well-adjusted members of both their canine and human families. Through play, your dog learns dog-to-dog social graces and is mentally and physically stimulated. Includes fun play time for dogs.
Dogs love to learn! Your dog will be encouraged to experience the world through their paws and nose. The Learning Games Programs is a great way to explore your dog’s creativity and talents! Prerequisite: Your dog must be over 6 months of age or older and have completed “Puppy SmartStart” or a beginner program in order to register and attend this course.
Rally Obedience - Novice
This new sport is intended to promote positive relationships between dogs and owners based on trust and respect. Dog and handler use directional signs to run through a numbered course within an allotted time. It is not simple or easy, but challenges you and your dog in a partnership that improves attention and teamwork.
Intro to Dog Sports
RALLY-O , Agility, Scent work, Treiball, Frisbee tricks, and conditioning exercises. Come out and fine tune your "obedience " cues while learning a new sport each week. We will work on focus, stays, recalls, heeling, distance work, targeting games and relationship building exercises - such a great way to build communication skills between you and your dog.
