Your dog's destination for fun!

These were for the Fall of 2007. We've left them posted here, because we might start a few back up if there's interest or need for them. Be sure to let us know if you'd like to try one of these!


Please Note: These workshops are offered for our continuing students (who are not starting at the Foundation level) as a way to polish up some skills. They will not necessarily be offered again past the end of the Fall 2007 session. The number of weeks in a session is noted for each workshop. Each class is one hour long unless noted otherwise.

Contacts 1     $40   3 weeks

Recall workshop      $25   3 weeks       

Does your dog stay with you when he's off leash? If you stop running and call him, will he return quickly and directly to you?

Play for Drive workshop     $15    2 weeks        

Is your dog as excited to play with you and a toy as he is about getting a food treat?  Toys will play an important role in our revised curriculum, so you may need to find what makes his clock tick and find out how you can use it to your advantage in agility.
