Show Handling - START

Our conformation show handling classes are designed to help prepare you and your dog to be successful in the show ring! To show confidence and ease of motion takes skill and practice.

During these classes we will be breaking apart the basic elements you need to learn. As the handler you need to understand the show ring etiquette: how to enter, where to stand, when to move forward and how to execute the judges requests.

We will also identify the training and abilities that will be expected of your dog and help ensure that your dog is comfortable level with all the required elements: movement, stacking, holding position, as well as the touching and restraint that will occur. In order for your dog to be shown in the ring with flare, he or she also needs to be happy and confident with the required tasks.

We offer a very individualized approach to these training sessions so that you and your dog can benefit in the areas you need to see most improvement.

This Show Handling session is 6 weeks in duration, and is limited to 6 dogs.

Class Fee: $250 (+GST)/Session of 6 weekly classes

Our instructor for this program is Shianna Fairley.

Shianna first entered the show ring with her beautiful young Rhodesian in 2008. Her background in equestrian hunter jumper has given her a wealth of experience in how to prepare for ring nerves and show well under pressure.

Shianna is currently our very popular Rally Obedience instructor and competes with her two beautiful Australian Shepherds in Rally, Conformation, Agility and Scent. We hope to have Shianna bring her Scent work skills to a training program soon. Shianna is a dedicated positive trainer.  Anyone who can train a cat to do Rally Obedience must have some serious patience and a genuinely positive nature.

Shianna loves teaching both people and dogs (and other animals!) and takes joy in her students achievements.

Scent Detection - Advanced - START

Develop your dog’s sense of smell while exploring this fun new urban sport!

Scent Work or Scent Detection, refers to the act of engaging a dog's scenting ability to locate and track a specific smell, and to indicate the location to their handler once found. This type of training is used in Search and Rescue, police hunts, drug, and bomb detection.  As scientists learn more about dogs incredible olfactory capabilities, new applications for harnessing these remarkable sensitivities are surfacing on an ongoing basis. Dogs are now trained to seek out early signs of cancer cells or bed bugs or other hazardous and difficult to detect insect infestations. In most cases dogs are trained specifically to seek and locate a targeted scent, track it down to the source and communicate this location to his handler. Scent work takes an incredible amount of concentration due to the fact that the dog is not only searching out the particular smell he is looking for, but also needs to filter through a myriad of other scents and stimulation on his way.

Enrolling in our Scent Detection program will give you an opportunity to learn more about how this fascinating process takes place. Unlike other activities such as obedience training, this activity requires the dog to work more independently of the handler. Students will learn how inspire their dogs to search for the scent, and to identify it once found. Through the exercises in class, the handlers will learn to release their dog to the task, and to trust in their dog’s ability. The dogs will learn how to work independently of the handler while staying connected. This can lead to a deeper strength of relationship and trust between the handler and dog.

This level of scent detection will help your dog get ready for the “Sporting Detection Dogs Association” trials.

Scent Detection is a fabulous way to offer your dog intense mental stimulation which can even be more tiring than a physical workout. It is great for dogs or owners who cannot physically commit to cardio intensive dog sports (such as agility, disc dog or flyball), and boosts the confidence of shy or nervous dogs. Scent training can be easily done in and around your home and it can be paired with other aspects of daily life, such as training your dog to find your keys, your tv remote, your glasses or lost toys! Minimal prerequisite training is required and older or physically challenged dogs can also participate. It is a great way to help dogs that might be on a limited activity recommendation due to injury or illness.

This class is intended for students who have completed All About Dogs Novice and Intermediate Scent Detection class.

Scent Detection Advanced Level is 6 weeks, and is limited to 6 dogs.
