Group classes are a series of lessons where you learn with your dog in a group setting with other dogs and their owners. For all group classes enrollment priority is given to clients that have already completed a program or a class, but occasionally there are openings available to the public. Contact us to receive more information about when these openings become available.

* *Your dog must be free of reactive behaviors [barking, growling, lunging] towards people or dogs to attend these classes. If you’re not sure if your dog would do well in a group environment, we can give you a free evaluation with a meet and greet.


Group obedience classes require the biggest commitment on your part to make the training effective. Group classes are set for predetermined days and times. If your schedule needs more flexibility, private sessions may provide a better solution for you. I have a handout on how to choose the option that is best for you and your dog. Please let me know if you’d like a copy.


Learn how to "listen to your dog" as your dog learns to "listen to you." During Good Manners, you will teach your dog how to stay with sit or down, come when called, impulse control, politely greet guests, settle or place, and walk nicely on a leash with the distraction of a group class.


*Prerequisite: Dog and owner need to have completed the Good Manners or have prior permission from the instructor.

This is an advanced obedience course that also prepares dogs to pass the Canine Good Citizens (CGC) exam. Dogs can be tested and evaluated, by an official American Kennel Club evaluator.


Are you worried your dog will jump all over your guests this holiday season, take off with your holiday dinner, or eat all the ornaments off of your tree? Then this class is for you!

This refresher course is here to help you and your dog maneuver through this holiday season without somebody getting hurt or an emergency vet visit! We will simulate different holiday functions (such as greeting guests that arrive or opening presents under the Christmas tree) so your dog is put into real-world situations to teach them skills at this festive time of year. This class is for dogs that have completed a basic obedience course and need a refresher before the holiday season.


This class introduces participants to the sport of competition obedience in which the dog and handler learn how to perform obedience cues. In this course, the team will be introduced to all of the AKC Novice class exercises. Basic knowledge of obedience cues is required.


This class introduces participants to the sport of Rally in which the dog and handler move through a course of directional signs that require the dog to perform obedience cues. In this course, AKC Novice signs will be taught individually and the handlers will learn to do the various stations correctly. Your dog must have an understanding of obedience behaviors such as sit, down, and leash manners.



 "Drop-In" means you can show up whenever you want...every week, once a month...whatever you want. Drop-in Practice is an opportunity for handlers and their dogs to have dedicated time to practice the skills they are working on. It is expected that you and your dog already know the basic skills of the topic of the drop-in.



Bring any personal items you need to work with your dog. All signs and/or equipment needed to practice will be provided.

You may be asked to help move, set up, or take down equipment.

Here are a few factors to consider regarding "dropping in" to practice.

1. If you haven’t taken a class at 307K9 but want to attend a drop-in practice you must contact me first. Attendees must be willing to use non-punitive training techniques and sign a waiver of liability.

2. If you register but fail to show up to the practice you may be required to pay in advance when you register.


This drop-in is intended for those handlers who wish to perfect their obedience skills to compete for Beginner Novice (BN) and/or Novice Companion Dog (CD) titles. The drop-in will be instructor guided and cover all novice obedience exercises. Each practice will be focusing on one or two of the exercises at a time. Handlers should plan to be at the drop-in at the starting time. It will be too disruptive to try to join in after everyone has started.


At this drop-in, I will have available to practice all Rally signs. I will set up sign stations in regard to what those that register for the drop-in need. This won’t include full courses but instead practicing the individual signs. If I know in advance those attending want full courses I will do what I can to set it up.


These classes are open to anyone that wants to enjoy learning new and fun things with their dog. To attend any of these classes, your dog must be free of reactivity or aggression toward people and dogs. Contact me to discuss how my coaching programs are a better starting point for you and your dog.


Intro to ScentWork–Level I Follow the Nose

This class is open to dogs of all ages. This foundation class introduces the concept of the game, builds handler observation skills and timing, and gets dogs focused. Food or a toy are used to build a hunting drive while keeping the game fun, building confidence, and burning lots of mental and physical energy.

Intro to Odor–Level II The Nose Knows

This class is open to those who have taken Intro to Scentwork. It will begin by going back to basics and repeating many of the exercises from the Intro class, but instead of food, an odor is introduced. We start with Birch as the first target odor. Searches expand in difficulty and observation skills along with leash handling will expand. The class will be focusing on containers and interiors and includes one drop-in weekend training. *Participants receive the birch odor with their scent kit!

Intro to Vehicles And Exteriors–Level III The Nosey K9

This class is open to those who have taken Intro to Odor. Continue to challenge your dog in the fun game of ScentWork with the Level III class. Dogs will be presented with buried hides and vehicle searches. With more distractions and more odors to add to the game, your dog will love these new challenges. *Participants receive two additional scents!

ScentWork Practice & Drop In [This will be offered again Fall 2023]

 "Drop-In" means you can show up whenever you want within the timeframe set aside for practices...every week, once a month...whatever you want. Drop-in is an opportunity for handlers and their dogs that have already attended a 307K9 Intro to ScentWork to have dedicated time to practice the skills they are working on. It is expected that you and your dog already know the basic skills of the topic of the drop-in.
