Modern Dog (aka Basic Manners/Basic Obedience) (6 weeks, $150)
A class for modern family dogs of all ages! Learn how to communicate with your dog, learn about body language, enrichment, teach helpful manners such as polite greetings, leash skills and impulse control; and learn skills important for safety, like recall, stay, handling, and more. Next session TBD!

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! The best way to keep 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!

In DWYD, we work on polite greetings with strangers, polite ordering at a bar or with waitstaff, walking on leash through tight and crowded spaces, settling on a mat at a table, leave it, and more!

The ideal dog for this class is either social or neutral with other dogs and with people; and who has had some basic manners experience. The class requires a pre-screen, click here to get on the list.

Intro to Nose Work / Intro to Odor / Continuing Nose Work (at Do Over Dog Training in Williamsville)  
Nose work is a sport based on the work of professional scent detection dogs. In class, dogs first search for a primary reinforcer (food). In Intro to Odor 1 & 2, dogs learn to search for an odor (birch) and then later on, additional scents are added along with puzzles and complexity in the searches. In continuing odor classes, all three target odors are used and searches expand to include vehicles and exterior spaces. Register HERE at DODT’s website (Dogology classes are Thursday evenings)!

Nose Work and Sniffy Enrichment Seminars - Drop in classes to learn the basics of using enrichment. TBD
