Scent Detection

Dogs learn to systematically search boxes and other objects, including vehicles, for hidden scent.

   
 

Solve-It

Do you find yourself thinking "But he knows this"? Is your dog getting tired of the training, getting bored and walking away? Is your dog becoming stressed or over-aroused during training? Is your dog being stubborn? If you have a training challenge, in class or at home, this is the class for you!

   

Tricks Class

There is no better way to get attention and yummy treats and it’s sooo much fun!

   

Outdoor MANNERS

Amazing is the only way we can describe the transformation with our very reactive dog. Levi, our 5 year old Duck Toller, had taken the Foundations training and walked nicely on a leash. However he started to react to bikes and it got worse as time went by. When he saw a bike go by our happy-go-lucky dog turned into a monster. He would bark, lunge, and do the famous 'duck toller scream'. He was totally uncontrollable. We were very much afraid that if he ever got off leash he would attack the cyclist. It was very stressfull for both us and Levi. We decided to ask Lisbeth for help. With a few private lessons and practice Levi is a changed dog. The other day a cyclist came up behind us and rode within two feet of Levi and he only turned his head to look for a treat. Amazing! We can't thank you enough Lisbeth and Levi thanks you too.
