Scent Detection

Open to all dogs, of all ages and abilities, this popular sport is the fun and competitive version of police detection dog training. The dog must locate any and all hidden target scents within a designated area and alert the handler to the location. A true partnership sport in which both ends of the leash must rely on one another.

Fitness Foundations

All dogs can benefit from proper exercise, suited to their skill level, age and ability. Whether a couch potato or all-star sporting competitor, fitness training can improve mobility, strength, balance and body awareness. By looking at each exercise as a game, dog and owner both enjoy this opportunity to build their relationship.

Disc Dog

In disc dog competitions, dogs and their human teammates compete in events such as distance catching and somewhat choreographed freestyle catching. Events are scored using a point system in which the percentage of successful catches, variety of throwing styles, accuracy of throwing, and ability to work as a team are important factors considered.
