Upcoming classes at Borderhauss Kennels!
All Scent classes are 8 weeks long. Life skills and puppy classes run for 6 weeks. CGC evaluations are conducted the week following the end of each class session for those students who choose to test. There is $20.00 fee for this service.
Advanced Scent begins January 5 and runs every other week for 8 weeks.
Advanced Scent: This class replicates as closely as possible the type of training handlers experience in real world search environments. Problems include large search areas, negative search areas, vehicles, in-ground burieds, and building searches. The focus is on search strategy, as well as dealing with environmental distractions and terrain challenges. There will be two field trips per session in order to develop dogs’ and students’ skills working in unfamiliar environments.
Prerequisites are completing at least one intermediate scent class and the ability to work off leash safely in a “real world” environment—students must make this determination for themselves and are responsible for their own dog’s safety and the safety of other dogs and people while working off leash. Until the class fills, current intermediate students may join the class as “drop ins.” Drop ins who are not comfortable working off leash may still participate by checking in advance if the upcoming training environment is one that they feel able to work in and benefit from, e.g., vehicles or building searches.
Life Skills for young dogs begins January 15 (this class is scheduled to run for 6 weeks)
Help your puppy learn “how to learn”, as well as feel confident in the world. Build a solid foundation for future training of all kinds by focusing on relationship building and fun. Help your puppy begin to find her best manners in your home and out in public. You can even work towards a puppy S.T.A.R. certificate if you desire.
This class is for dogs under 1 year and focuses on learning body awareness, tricks, basic obedience, impulse control, and socializing. This class is suitable for puppies that will participate in a variety of dog sports.
