Group Classes


    My K9 Nose Work® classes offer small class sizes - (a maximum of 9 dogs) and run for an hour and a half. This allows for a lot of individual attention and coaching during the class. All classes must have at least 3 signups or may be postponed. Dogs are worked one at a time in K9 Nose Work® class. Dogs must be capable of handling confinement, either crated away from their handlers or in a properly equipped vehicle when it is not their turn.

  • Intro to Nose Work - Have fun teaching your dog how to use his nose!
    For dogs 5 months and older. Class is 1.5 hours in duration. Cost: $150 for 6 week class ($120 for previous Tell a Tail Students)
    Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This class focuses on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog's natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It is a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy and to find out just how good your dog's nose is. High food or toy motivation is beneficial for this class.
