Nose Work is
the hottest new sport in the dog world! It is
a fun new activity for all types of dogs (and owners), all energy levels, even
dogs -ages 6 months and older. This is a great class for the
shy/fearful/reactive dog. Canine Nose Works is a FUN activity where your dog
gets to use his natural, amazing ability to smell, while develop confidence and independence. Each dog and owner
work individually. Is a fun game that can be
played around the house, as well as a sport with three levels of competition
– if you so choose. Come, enjoy and see what the craze is all about!
–Have no fear - if you missed out on a Puppy Star class you
can still train your dog and become a winning team.
This class is a basic obedience class designed by the
American Kennel Club to help train dogs to be a welcome member of
your home and community. Through
training, a dog will learn how to behave acceptably under
different conditions and earn the title of a Canine Good Citizen.
Training begun in Puppy Star will be continued and expanded
in this class for your older dog.
to Obstacles and Competition agility
Agility – You’ve seen these canine athletes on
television having a wonderful time competing for coveted titles.
Running obstacle courses in designated sequences with their human
partners -agility is the ultimate team activity.
Whether you want to compete or just have a lot of fun with
your dog; learn this wonderful sport at the Olean Kennel Club.
Instructors will show you how to safely teach your dog to
use the A-Frame, Dog Walk, Tunnels, Chutes, Jumps, Teeter, and
Pause Table. This is a
great way for dog and human to share in the fun.
Dogs are natural therapists.
Therapy dog classes teach your dog the skills they will
need to give emotional support and loving therapy to those needing
the special love only a dog can give.
Classes help a dog to accept all the things they might
encounter in a hospital or nursing home environment.
Dogs can even qualify to be “Tail Waggin Tutors” where
they help children with reading difficulties by being
non-judgmental listeners at libraries and schools. At the
completion of the course an evaluation is conducted by a certified
Therapy Dog International Evaluator.
