Behavior Adjustment Training (B.A.T.) is designed to rehabilitate and prevent dog reactivity. This class helps dogs gain confidence and social skills, and is especially useful when the “triggers” for reactive dogs are other dogs or people.
Dog Parkour™ combines elements of human parkour and dog agility to create an accessible activity for dogs and humans alike. Dogs get introduced to the world of jumping, climbing, balancing over, crawling under, and going around different obstacles in their everyday world.
The Control Unleashed® class is for fearful/reactive dogs. This class will teach the dog and handler skills to cope with stressful situations, giving the dogs the ability to stay calm when faced with the triggers that cause inappropriate reactions.
Rally for Better Obedience
Rally is a fun sport for all dogs and handlers. It is comprised of a variety of tasks set in a course. You will learn a variety of behaviors such as loose leash walking, fronts, pivots, jumps, and leaving distractions.
This class will start you on the path to dancing with your dog. You will learn simple dance moves and how to choreograph a routine and select music. This class will also cover behavior chains and how to use your reinforcement to get the most out of your dog.
Rodent Adventure Tracking
Rodent Adventure Tracking (RAT) is an interdisciplinary sport that combines scents and obstacles to engage a dog’s senses and express their instincts. Dogs apply their hunting instincts to find hidden rodents while obstacles test the dog’s agility, balance, confidence, and creativity.
