Ideal Puppy Training & Socialization is your puppy's first class, almost like Kindergarten. Your puppy must be between 8 and 18 weeks at the start of class.

Why should all puppies go to school? By five months of age much of your puppy's personality has been determined, so it is very important to begin a class prior to this age. Early puppyhood is a critical time for socialization and learning. This time will set the stage for the rest of your puppy's life. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance to show your puppy how to confidently relate to other puppies, unfamiliar people, and strange sights, sounds, and events. It is crucial that this developmental stage is used wisely!

We will work on critical skills such as socialization and bite inhibition (developing a soft mouth), as well as issues such as housebreaking, and chewing. Your pup will learn to control biting by playing with dogs his age. It's important that your puppy learns to be comfortable in strange settings and situations and to adapt to the world around him and feel at ease with other dogs and people.

Puppy play to teach important dog-dog socialization skills, is an important aspect of this class. We will also cover basic manners and preventing bad habits and behavior problems. We will introduce basic obedience such as sit, down, come, don't touch and follow. We will also discuss important things like grooming, house training, and socialization. We will show you good games to play with your puppy that are both fun and teach your puppy self control. 

Instructor: Mindy Cox or Cheryl VanVoorhies.

Nose Work Games

Nose Work classes work on an exciting concept that allows participants of any skill level to join any class. Each class is a mixed group of different levels of experience which allows everyone to learn from each other plus there is less waiting to begin a class. Every search is personalized to the skill level of your dog so your dog always receives the challenges he or she is ready for. You can register whether you are new to Nose Work or you have taken one or more Nose Work classes and have a more experienced dog! Class size is limited to 6 dogs so don't wait to register to secure your spot in this amazing class.

The Nose Knows! 

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to sniff, search and hunt. The sport of K9 Nose Work is designed to develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It’s a great way for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy. In this class we take your dog’s instinctual skill and teach them to use it to play games with their noses! 

Your dog's nose is about 100 times more sensitive than your own. A dog can detect 1 teaspoon of sugar in the water it would take to fill two Olympic sized swimming pools. Your dog is built to sniff. And what happens in your dog's brain may be even more important. It's here that dogs are able to discriminate between smells and components of smells, which can be further enhanced through training.

This is a sport suitable for just about any dog! 

Just about any person and any dog can do Nose Work! The art and practice of nose work is open to dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages, even young puppies and older, senior dogs. It has made basic search dog skills available to companion dogs, creating a new sport arena for dog enthusiasts. Not only has it proven to be a great activity for all types of dogs, but it is one of the most accessible activities for the widest variety of dog handlers regardless of previous training experience. No previous obedience work is required. 

This is a great outlet for reactive dogs - dogs who don't usually do well in a traditional obedience class because of the close proximity to other dogs. Each Nose Work search is done without any other dogs present. As long as the dog isn't aggressive toward humans (and not a resource guarder), he's probably a good candidate for Nose Work Games. 

Nose Work may be started with young puppies (12 weeks and older). Puppies are the best instructors – expose them and watch them, they are all natural. It is also appropriate for dogs of all ages including older dogs and those whose physical health prevents them from doing more rigorous sports such as agility. 

Why Do Nose Work? 

• Provides mental and physical energy burn

• Builds relationship between handler and dog

• Confidence builder for the dog

• Any human can teach it to their dogs.

• Any dog with a nose can learn it.

• NO prerequisites except dog must have a nose!

• The most amazing enrichment for your dog.

• Dogs LOVE to do this.

• You can do this work anywhere in any weather.

• Dogs get very satisfied and quite tired doing Nose Work.

• It’s Fun! 

The Lucky Dog Nose Work Class Guidelines 

• Dogs in class cannot be resource guarders (protect toys or treats by growling or snapping).

• One dog works at a time. 

• Dog socialization is limited (crated between runs- don't forget to bring yours, or rent one of ours! On cool days you may opt to leave Rover in the car instead of in a crate). 

• Searches are individualized for each dog. Dogs can search for their favorite toy or treat. 

• Dog-dog interaction is not an issue because all dogs are kept separate from each other and search individually when it is their turn, which allows dog-reactive dogs to participate. Generally, as time goes on, these dogs may become less dog-reactive.

• People-reactive dogs are not allowed in class for safety reasons. If your dog lunges, growls or snaps at other people, this is not the class for you.

• Dogs in class cannot be resource guarders (protective of toys or treats by growling or snapping if someone comes near).

• Crate time: Dogs rest in crates or pens when not working. This allows them to focus, reflect and relax. (You must bring a crate to class or rent one of ours. See more info below about exceptions.) 

PLEASE READ: Important note about crating: You must be able to provide a crate for your dog and bring it to class each week, or you can opt to rent one of ours and have it clean, set up and ready for you when you come to class (see below for more info). Crates keep the dogs safe and secure between their times to search and allows them quiet time to process what they are learning. Soft sided crates are the easiest to transport. If you would like a handout on crate training, please let us know!

If your dog absolutely cannot be crated but can be tied and stay calm, we have one space in which to do so. Or, during cool weather, you may keep your dog in your car between searches.

Crate Rental 

You can rent a crate from us for any or all of your class days. We will have it set up, clean and ready for you when you arrive. The cost is $10 per class. Please provide your own crate pad or towel for your dog to lie on (if you choose) and a crate cover.
