Play & Learn

Structured small-group play for dogs with proactive owners!

Dog play can be complex and escalate quickly.  It’s hard to enforce rules at dog parks where one or more dogs may not be under control or owners may not be aware of their dogs’ inappropriate or unsafe behavior.  If your friendly dog would benefit from well-structured socialization, or you’d like to learn more about how to gauge and respond to play between dogs then our Play & Learn class is perfect for you!

Dogs must be friendly with no history of biting other dogs or people.

Rally-O

Put your dog obedience and handling skills to the test! 

Rally Obedience (rally-o) is a fun and exciting team sport for dogs and their handlers! Dog and handler teams navigate a course at a brisk, continuous pace. Courses consist of numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform such as sit-down-sit, figure eight, send-over-jump, spiral left, side-step right, down-on-recall, and more! It is a fun test of obedience and the trust in the relationship between dog and handler.
