Your dog loves finding things with its nose. Train your dog to find birch, clove, anise, myrrh, and vetiver oil scents (just like police dogs are trained to find narcotics) for titles or just for fun. The United Kennel Club (UKC) now offers titling events to test your dog’s ability to find and indicate hidden scents in boxes, interior rooms, exterior areas and on vehicles. Dogs must be 12 weeks or older.

Sorry but refunds for classes are not possible with less than 7 days prior notification to the class start date. Hurry, don’t delay as classes fill up fast.

What to bring to class?

  • If your puppy or dog is a new student, please bring a copy of your dog’s vaccination verification (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies) and a negative fecal test result within the last six months to the first night of class. Puppies and Dogs cannot attend class without verification.
  • Soft food treats your dog enjoys

If you are new to the sport, book an intro class ($150 for four weeks) via the above “Book Online” icon. Or  you can elect to purchase a package of classes instead of pay as you go:

Three months of classes $405.00 ($45 savings)
Six months of classes $720.00 ($180 savings)
12 months of classes $1200.00 ($600 savings)
