Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. The sport of Nose Work is designed to develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt. It’s a great way for Nose Work Teams to have fun. Dogs will build confidence and burn lots of mental energy.

Teams will work one at a time. This will allow dogs the opportunity to build confidence in new environments and working around obstacles without stress. Food will be the first reward learned, followed by pairing food and Birch odor together in a ‘Search Area’ of containers.  Join in on the fun and rewarding sport of Nose Work.

AKC has recently added Nose Work to their venue giving teams the opportunity to earn AKC Nose Work titles!

Bring the following to class: flat collar, 6ft. or longer leash, and ‘tons’ of high value soft treats.

AKC Rally takes the average pet owner a step beyond Canine Good Citizen and the basic obedience training and into the exciting world of AKC canine sports. AKC Rally is a fun, low-stress way for people to enjoy and bond with their dogs.

AKC Rally Competition allows a dog and handler team to work at their own pace, with the dog heeling at signs placed throughout the course. Each sign contains an exercise illustrated with symbols. In total there are 67 exercise signs that judges may use to design the courses, and the number of required exercises can increase with each level of competition.

In this class we will introduce you to the various signs and corresponding exercise used in rally competition. We’ll work on various course configurations to develop your comfort level with the various transitions between exercises. This is a hands on instruction course as well having run throughs.

For one to begin in Rally the dog, on command, should be able to sit, down, stand, come when called, and heel. In advanced levels the dog will also be required to jump an obstacle. This class is for the dog that has Rally experience and needs to improve skills for competition.
