DOG SPORTS

Fun ways to train your dog!

Training doesn’t end once your dog learns the foundation behaviors. To maintain what you have already taught your dog, you will need to provide your dog with consistent, ongoing training. But training doesn’t need to be boring. Teaching your dog a sport gives them something fun to do. It also helps build their confidence, increases behavior fluency and working around distractions. Plus, there is the added benefit of all the attention your dog will receive from you builds confidence and polite manners.

MuttSchool’s TRICK TRAINING, AGILITY-FUN, NOSEWORK, P.E. GROUP WALKS and RALLY OBEDIENCE classes give you many organized ways to have fun with your dog. Join one of our classes today!

Dog Sport classes are held six consecutive weeks.
