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.

Control Unleashed!

For performance dogs-in-training only. This class follows the curriculum based upon Leslie McDevitt’s book and program, Control Unleashed! Do you have all the basics down with your future performance dog, and need the "next step" to get them ready for the excitement of agility and flyball class? Then this class is for you. This class is appropriate for dogs who have mastered basic obedience behaviors such as "stay" and loose lead walking and are non-aggressive around other dogs. It is designed to give your dog the experience of being loose around other dogs while remaining in "work mode" not "play mode." It is designed to desensitize dogs to other dogs moving quickly or tugging nearby. The foundation theme of this class is Connection; we will be exploring various ways for you to feel connected with your dog and remain the center of your dog's focus around an increasing level of distractions, and help you take that next step towards becoming a working team.

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.

Register for the whole session or pay per class. Per class rate is $25 for members, $30 for non-members.

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