Nail Trim Workshop 

Saturday, TBA at 2:00pm



In this workshop you will learn the skills needed to teach your dog not only how to happily cooperate with nail trims but how to be an active participant in the activity. Less stress for your dog and less stress for you! Please note there is no actual clipping of nails in this class. The workshop is for teaching foundation behaviours and cooperative compliance for future nail trimming sessions with your dog.

Lassie, The Littlest Hobo, Balto, Togo, and Sassy. What do these great names have in common? They're all animal actors. Household names of animals who made an impact on our lives through film and television.


Have you ever wondered what it takes for animals to become actors? Discover the world of animal training for movies, tv series, photo shoots and commercials. We discuss training fundamentals for animal actors, as well as why some animals are best suited for specific tasks.

Urban Locate Workshop





This workshop will introduce you and your dog to the fun game of Urban Locating by NASDA.

The purpose of the Urban Level is to simulate the work of both historic and modern urban hunting dogs. The fundamental features of the Urban Locating working tests are to show the dog’s ability to locate a quarry (gerbil in our case) in a human environment.  These environments can be indoors our outdoors and may include urban parks, a street, a developed garden space, a warehouse, working barn, etc.
