Drink With Your Dog®

This fun class is held at local, dog friendly breweries, patios, and bars. Learn the advanced manners needed to have a great brewery dog - or a dog you can take in any public place! The best way to keep patios and other public places dog-friendly is by bringing your well mannered dog there! When you visit with your well trained dog, you are a wonderful example to both other dog owners, who will want to also have a great brewery dog. And to brewery staff, who will see that there are fun, well-behaved dogs out there who are appropriate to visit their business. It is also a really fun way to spend time with your dog!

The ideal dog for this class is either social or neutral with other dogs and with people; and has had some basic manners experience. The class requires either a previous class with Dogology or completion of a pre-screen; click here to get on the list. Next session starts June 5th at Fattey Beer in North Tonawanda and has a few spots left.

Intro to Nose Work / Intro to Odor / Continuing Nose Work Skills (at Do Over Dog Training)  
Nose work is a sport based on the work of professional scent detection dogs. In Intro to K9 Nose Work, dogs first search for a primary reinforcer (food or toys). In Intro to Odor 1 & 2, dogs learn to search for an odor (birch, anise, clove) and solve puzzles plus build problem solving skills with added complexity in searches. In continuing odor classes, all three target odors are used, new skills are learned, and searches expand to include vehicles and exterior spaces.
