AGILITY/NOSE
WORK
AGILITY/NOSE
WORK

Our agility course includes skill building and training to help boost your dogs confidence. We believe in using agility equipment, as well as real life objects to give our clients the opportunity to work with their dogs, even when they are not in class.

Our nose work course teaches 

dogs to identify and pinpoint a smell to its source. Our main goal is to give your dog a job or purpose. This course works well with high energy dogs that require more than obedience and physical stimulation.

 

We require all dogs enrolled in this program have passed our Obedience 101 course.
