What is AKC Scent Work?

The sport of Scent Work is based on the work of professional detection dogs [such as drug dogs], employed by humans to detect a wide variety of scents and substances. In AKC Scent Work, dogs search for cotton swabs saturated with the essential oils of Birch, Anise, Clove, and Cypress. The cotton swabs are hidden out of sight in a pre-determined search area. And the dog has to find them. Teamwork is necessary: when the dog finds the scent, he has to communicate the find to the handler, who calls it out to the judge.

  • Puppy Training

  • Dog Behavioral Problem Solving
  • Dog Obedience and Control

Puppy Training

Let an experienced trainer teach you the best manner in which to raise and train your puppy. We recommend private lessons for puppy training. One-on-one classes allow you to focus on all the details necessary for training a dog which you can control. It is necessary to develop a puppy that respects your commands, yet at the same time knows that you are a just and enthusiastic alpha dog. We will help you to discover play drives that will motivate your pup to work harder. Puppy lessons are Private Lessons for weekly 60-minute sessions with our trainer. Practicing with your puppy during the week is a requirement for achieving your goal of having an obedient and fun adult dog.

Private Lessons

If you are serious about obedience, solving a behavioral problem, or you truly want off-leash control, this is the course for you. We strongly recommend this course for any dogs with an aggression problem toward people or dogs. This one-on-one class will provide a highly detailed understanding of the canine mind and training techniques.

Dog Behavioral Problem Solving

Is your dog making your life difficult? Behavioral problems are the number one reason why dogs end up at shelters. Come in for a private consultation and let our experienced Trainers help you with that annoying dog problem. In many cases, a single private lesson is sufficient to give you the proper advice to solve or prevent the problem from escalating. Call for help on problems such as jumping, digging, escaping, chewing, and more. We’re here to help so you don’t have to relinquish your dog.

Dog Obedience and Control

Obedience training will teach your dog to respond to the five basic commands. These commands are the foundation for any type of general obedience as well as competitive obedience. The commands are:

Heel = Dog must walk close to your left or right leg without pulling on the leash.
Sit = To sit on command and automatically when you stop.
Stay = To remain in a location either at a sit or down.
Down = To lay down with the elbows resting on the ground.
Come = Run to the handler and sit in front or loop around into the heel position.

Control is training the dog to obey the five basic commands whether he wants to or not. You need control over your dog inside the house to stop him from jumping, running out the door, stealing items off countertops among other behavioral issues. You will teach your dog that there is not an option when it comes to obeying your commands. Control will give you the ability to stop the dog before he goes after another dog. We can teach you the techniques necessary to obtain the ultimate control over your active dog.

AKC Urban CGC requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills and beyond in a setting that includes traffic, crowds, noises, smells and other distractions that are present in a city or town. As with Canine Good Citizen, AKC Urban CGC is a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Urban CGC title. This is a title that appears on the dog’s title record at AKC.

AKC Advanced CGC
AKC Community Canine℠ is the advanced level of the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Program. Dogs who pass the AKC Community Canine test earn the official AKC Community Canine title that is designated by the letters “CGCA” (Advanced CGC) on the dog’s title record.

In-Home Lessons

If you are having behavioral problems at home such as charging out the front door, jumping on people, chewing, being overly protective toward the house, or you simply have a difficult time controlling a hyperactive dog, call for an in-home consultation. In-home sessions are recommended if it is difficult for you to drive to our training location, or if your dog only behaves badly on his property. Our in-home lessons are more than just a class. It is a dog behavior clinic. During the in-home, our professional dog trainer/dog behaviorist will address numerous topics and give you advice that will help you solve future problems. The average in-home lesson is approximately an hour, so please be prepared to set aside enough time for this intense dog behavior lesson.

In-Lodge/Puppy Bootcamp Training

If you do not have the time to attend private lessons or simply do not want to bother with the struggle of teaching your dog commands, we recommend in-lodge training only for dogs with no previous professional obedience training. We only accept dogs between the ages of 3 months and one year for this type of course. Your dog will learn the basic obedience commands on a leash. We will teach your new dog all the basic skills, which are the following: heel, sit, stay, down, and come. Establishing a strong foundation is the key to having an obedient and well-controlled dog.
