K9 Detection Work/Find It

This class is a lot of fun for both dogs and their owners as it builds on the dog’s natural instinct to hunt. It’s the beginning of detection work, takes little space, no real equipment, and it’s easy to practice at home. This is a great activity for those bad weather days when you just don’t want to do much outside. After all what could be better than finding chicken in a box or a treat under a ball? Provides physical and mental stimulation as it builds confidence. In addition to competition we’ve used Find It to help a young dog climb stairs, a resource guarder to feel more comfortable giving up a prized possession and making friends with an aggressive dog
