Tasks may include picking up dropped objects, turning on the lights, retrieving items, opening doors or whatever you can come up with to teach your dog to assist you.

Trick dog: Test your dog’s agility and athleticism. The sky’s the limit on what your dog can learn and perform. Let’s put them to the test. If you can capture it, you can train it. This course focuses on clicker training and handler timing to shape behaviors through positive reinforcement. Let your dog impress you with what they are capable of learning through motivation and handler guidance.
Scent detection: Does your dog need a job? Are they hyper, unfocused or highly driven? Detection is a fantastic outlet for a dog with a strong desire to hunt. Mental activity will tire your dog out faster that physical. Whether teaching your dog a sport such as NoseWork or competition hunting or just want to occupy them with a fun instinctive hunt game, teach your dog to hunt down most anything. Common items include animal scents, cell phone, essential oils etc. Allow your dog to really shine in a fun, fulfilling way.
