Intro to K9 Nose Work Mini Series

59301695_853061698384697_514913604234274

K9 Nose Work is a dog sport that utilizes all dogs natural searching and hunting abilities. Inspired by working detection dogs, this fun sport teaches your dog to hunt for their favorite treat or toy among a few boxes. Target odors are then introduced to make it even more challenging. As each dog progresses, more boxes are added. The search becomes more difficult when we take it outside, add different containers, expand to whole rooms, and even vehicles!
The structure of this class is such that each dog works independently making it a great option for any dog! Cost of this class is $85.

Class meets once weekly for 3 weeks at The Yellow Dogs Barn in Barrington NH, starting August 17th at 11am.

Puppy Basics Mini Series

Puppy hood is a time of playing, laughing, learning, exploring and growing (all too fast!). At this impressionable stage, building a trusting relationship is paramount too. That is why this class will be focused on a training style that is positive and fun. Using a clicker or marker word (yes, nice, etc.) to shape and reward appropriate behavior instead of correcting undesirable behavior. It is our belief that training should be fun for both dog and human. So let's grab our treat pouches and have some fun!

Class starts Saturday August 17th at 10 AM and meets once weekly for 3 weeks, at The Yellow Dog's Barn in Barrington. Cost of this class is $90.
