WHAT
Looking for something fun to do with your pup? 

Is it time to take your training to the next level? Have a dog that needs a job, but you don’t know where to get started? Have a dog that loves to sniff and you wondered what doing a scentwork competition might be like? Have you seen an agility trial on the sports channel and wanted to try it out? Never heard of weight pull or barn hunt? Sign up to discover the vast options of sports available to do with your dog! 

Dog sports are fun for both ends of the leash!  Through sampling some different sports, you will get to see which sport might be a good fit for your dog and their skills. Besides, having your dog try new things can be an enriching experience, and you will learn what each sport would be like for the human, as well. This is a great class to take if your dog needs a job and you are just not sure what to try next. Who knows you may find a sport that the both of you would love to pursue!

What you will learn:
Our Sports Sampler is the perfect introduction to dog sports! We will rotate our offerings based upon the season. One dog sport per week will be the feature. A competition-like ring will be set up so you get the feel for a real competition setting. We will teach basic skills and components through a variety of fun run-thrus and games, and there will be skills and resources available for additional training. 

Fall/Winter: Rally-O, Scentwork/Nosework, Agility, Virtual Home Manners
