Let's Train

DRIVE BUILDING WORKSHOP

In Drive Building, we use motivational games, effective teasing, and controlled restraint to build a more driven dog. This workshop is for anyone interested in working on an advanced training relationship with their dog.

Benefits of Drive Building:

  • More intensity in the work

  • Achieves faster behaviors

  • More attentive

  • Becomes more tolerant of environmental stimuli

  • Taught to turn on and off, thus enabling control of nuisance behaviors

Drive Building is very rewarding. In the process of bringing our dogs to a higher state, we usually gain much insight into what motivates them, how they like to play, and which motivators they like more over others. 1st session in course is lecture.

TRACKING WORKSHOP

Tracking (scent detection) is a rewarding way to engage with your dog.  All dogs have a desire to smell things and explore the world through their noses.  This Tracking Workshop will give you the methodical tools to teach your dog how to detect scent foot print by foot print.  Tracking is fun, confidence building, and mentally stimulating for dogs of all kinds and ages. 1st session in course is lecture.  Classes except lecture session are held outside regardless of weather.
