K9 Nose Work® Classes

The activity and sport of K9 Nose Work® is designed to develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. All classes taught by Dana Stillinger, Certified Nose Work Instructor

Introduction to K9 Nose Work®

“ A great new way to interact with your pet, tire him out, and create a fun game you can share with your dog anywhere. Urban hunting is a skill all dogs have, you just need to teach him to tell you when he’s found the target he’s been 'scent' to find."

Agility Classes


Winter/Spring sessions are held at the Paulus Hay Barn south of Monmouth on Hwy 99W Call the school (541-754-6956) for additional information on location if needed.

All 6 week Agility classes are $100.00

Introduction to Agility

This class is for people interested in learning the sport of agility. Basic skills such as running with your dog: turning, and stopping. Short, easy drills, many of which you can do at home. Gradual introduction of equipment and instruction on how to practice safe performance on the various elements. This class is directed towards teams that wish to eventually compete, but that is certainly not a requirement. Dogs must be good around other dogs that are running and playing, and will need a decent recall. ( not play keep away) Food and toy interest important.

Beginners Agility

MONDAYS

Small sequences that will incorporate all the basic agility obstacles and the basic patterns seen on courses of all the venues. Weaves with aids, such as guides and targeting. Contact zone drills to teach the new dog how to perform the apparatus quickly and correctly. Emphasis on targeting to increase speed and reliability. Moderate distance work to allow the team to work independently when necessary. Teams at this level are not ready for competition yet, but are interested in working smoothly together.

Beginners Agility

WEDNESDAYS

This class focuses on beginning coursework for handler/dog teams that have or are developing substantial obstacle performance skills. Short courses will offer beginning handling challenges such as side changes, path management, and situations requiring collection and/or extension. While introducing dogs to new sequences we will also work on solidifying and maintaining obstacle performance objectives. A particular emphasis is on maintaining our positive training practices while in the very distracting agility coursework environment.
