Rally Skills

Looking to continue building a lasting relationship with your dog while preparing for competition, just having fun, or building a bond before you try a more intense sport such as Agility or Flyball? This course may be just right for you. It’s also perfect for those retired or “sport” dogs who still want to be active.

This class is geared towards anyone with zero or some experience with Rally; it will teach the skills needed to perform the Rally signs while offering a chance to start and/or perfect with more coursework. Students who have prior Rally experience are also invited to this class; it will teach the Novice and Intermediate/Advanced level, tailoring it to each student in the class. The small-size of this class will allow the instructor to tailor the class to the skill level of the students.

Intro to Nose Work

Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. This easy to learn activity and sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a safe way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise. Nose Work starts with getting your dog excited about using his nose to seek out a favorite toy or treat reward hidden in one of several boxes, expanding the game to entire rooms, exterior areas, and vehicles. As your dog grows more confident with his nose, target odors are introduced, and competition skills are taught. Prepare for a lifetime of fun with your dog and Nose Work!

Conformation Handling

The goal of our ongoing Show Handling Class is to help you and your dog become a skilled, confident and happy team, ready to make a polished presentation to Conformation judges. Dog/handler teams practice either floor or table stacking for judges’ examination. Various gaiting patterns are executed so that you and your dog can move fluidly in whatever pattern you encounter. In addition, dogs get lots of experience being touched, existing comfortably with different breeds, and developing a relaxed and positive attitude. Individual guidance is offered in breed specific presentation as well as presenting your dog’s best assets to a judge, while downplaying minor imperfections. Class often includes grooming advice as well as trouble-shooting for dogs who have encountered show ring hiccups. We emphasize a positive experience for the dog/handler team.

Drop-ins only. $20 for members, $25 for non-members.

Please email Winnie for more information or if you plan to drop in.
