Dog training classes are taught at No Monkey Business Dog Training. We teach classes on weekday evenings and weekends so you can find a class that fits your schedule. We recommend if you are considering signing up for a class that you thoroughly review your personal schedule to ensure you will not miss classes. It is fine to miss one, and we will help you make up what you missed the next class, but most dogs do best when they can come every week. It is fine for someone else to bring the dog in your place if you are away, including your petsitter or dog walker!

Classes run on most holidays except forJuly 4th, Thanksgiving and Christmas, unless otherwise noted, or discussed in the first class depending on group attendance. We do our best to work around everyone’s schedule but also know the benefits dogs experience by coming to classes each week instead of missing weeks in-between. If you have a conflict due to a holiday and we are still running the class, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you and have you drop into one of the other classes!

Basic classes are 6 weeks long and cost $160 unless otherwise noted.

Advanced classes range in length and cost and are listed in their description

The Nose Knows: Scent Games For Your Dog – Drop in Class

Advanced Level Class

Drop in The Nose Knows: Scent Games For Your Dog Drop in Class: They are fun, engage your dog’s mind, provide exercise, and create training opportunities. Preparing for Competition or Just for Fun

Description: Have you noticed that dogs live by their nose?  A dog’s sense of smell is more powerful than we can possibly imagine.  They can easily detect the presence of one drop of blood in a 55-gallon drum of water.  All this talent needs a positive outlet.  So instead of nagging at your dog to stop sniffing, here’s a chance to learn how to have fun letting your dog be led around by his nose!! Scent work is easy for the dog.  Training your dog to play scent games means figuring out how to “tell” your dog which odor gets rewarded.  This seminar will introduce you to a number of great nose games and show you how to teach your dog the rules.  We’ll use operant conditioning techniques to “mark” the right odor and then reinforce it with food or play.

Everyone will find themselves in awe of what their dog can learn to do with his nose and both you and your dog will have lots of fun learning these scent games!

COST   $100 4 classes or $25 Drop in fee  this is a 45-minute class

Starts October 29th
