We all know dogs love to use their powerful noses to sniff things out. Scent Work class gives them the opportunity to do just that while having fun learning new things. We had so much fun in the first class we’ve decided to do it again! Whether you are new to the sport or continuing training from the previous class, instructor Deanna Butler can “meet you where you’re at” in your training.
Join us for six weeks of fun and enrichment!
We use the clicker training method in our classes, and all classes are taught on that foundation. For that reason, in our experience, dogs who have been home-trained or attended classes elsewhere have a very difficult time "catching up" in our intermediate class. We believe you, your dog, and your training goals will be best served by attending our beginner class first. Feel free to call us at 479.444.0300 for further discussion on this issue.
A very wise therapy dog evaluator once told us, "If someone ever tries to charge you for ‘therapy dog classes', run! Because the training for a therapy dog is obedience training!" And, yes, we do obedience training…LOTS of obedience training. Assuming your dog has the right temperament to become a therapy dog, we can absolutely help you achieve that goal.
Yes we can! We have three AKC-certified CGC evaluators on staff.
