Classes offered....something for everyone! (Classes listed are for nose work, however I will teach private lessons for other scent detection students desire)
Group Classes Small group classes of 2-7 dogs and handlers available. Handlers will be at similar level. Introduction to Nosework and Nosework 1, 2, 3 or elite are examples of levels. Classes will be held at local public parks and locations.
If you have previously taken classes and wish to join a group class. A 30 minute private lesson will be required to assess your teams skills and then add you to an appropriate level class. An exception will be made if you have an NW2 title as example, you would then be added to the NW3 prep class.
For group classes dogs must be crated or safely restrained within vehicles. In the summer being loose in the car will not be sufficient due to heat and a loose dog with open windows in a vehicle is not safe for other students. If your dog cannot be crated within your car safely for a group class, a private class or online class is a more suitable option.
Prices for Groups of 3 ...$120 6 weeks of classes compromised of one forty five minute class per week
Prices of Groups of 4-5 ...$100 6 weeks of classes compromised of one hour lesson per week
Prices of Groups of 6-7...$100 6 weeks of classes compromised of one and a half hour lesson per week
Private Classes These are appropriate for those wishing to work on an specific problem, trial preparation, one on one attention and focus, or those that simply would rather have a private lesson at their home instead of at a public training location. This is also an option for those dogs that are still working on being crated in the car for group classes, are too reactive, or too environmental for group classes yet and will progress to group classes at a later date.
Private Lesson Prices 1 hour...$60 an hour within a 15 mile drive of trainers home 30 minutes... $40 within a 15 mile drive of trainers home Those private lessons further than 20 mile drive will have added price for driving time/mileage. Contact for prices.
Online Training This option is for those that live too far away to attend in person private or group classes or simply don't wish to 'schedule' time for classes. In this instance, you will video yourself training and working with your dog and submit the videos through email for feedback and training all done through email communication.
You can either attend a 'class' in this manner and have weekly lessons or do trouble shooting/trial prepartion/trial video reviews similar to a private lesson and focus on your teams needs.
