Can't make a regular class? Need a bit of extra training? Looking for a way to spend a couple hours with fellow dog enthusiasts in a comfortable social setting?
 
On occassion I offer workshops on a variety of different training topics. Bring your social canine companion to these drop-in, pay-as-you go group working sessions! Due to the limited space available, pre-registration and payment is required to reserve your spot.

Anyone interested in training, competition obedience and/or Nosework using predominately positive reinforcement training. All levels of learners welcome, from beginners to advanced students.

What can I expect? 
My workshops are fun, focused, small-group training sessions. We begin with a bit of instruction ("the science" part) and follow-up with practicing skills. Obedience workshops include run-throughs, group execises practicing sits, downs and proofing. Nosework workshops include working on handler and dog skills at all levels.
