Kudos for Canines offers a selection of group classes to suit many of your training needs.  Check out the listings below and click on the title for more information.

Pet Classes

Puppy Manners: Do you have a puppy that’s under 16 weeks old? We offer small group classes designed to give your dogs a good foundation of solid training AND give you the skills to continue on!

K9 Fitness: Make your dog the best version of itself with canine fitness! Whether your dog is an active athlete or more of a couch pooch, this class will give you the tools and ideas you need to get, or keep, your dog in shape!

AKC Tricks: Do you and your dog love to be the life of the party by showing off their arsenal of tricks? Then your dog might be perfectly primed to earn AKC Trick Dog titles!

Smells Like Puppy Teen Spirit: Targeted towards our puppies aged between 5 and 10 months old.  This class will give you the tools to create focus in your young dog, while having appropriate expectations of their maturity levels.

K9 Nose Work & Scent Based Classes

Take this great opportunity to enter your dog’s world, the world of scent. Click on the link above to find out more about our class offerings. We start with Intro to K9 Nose Work and no obedience is required. Dogs must be able to settle in a crate, or in their car, away from their owners.

Drop-In Performance & Conformation Classes

Kudos for Canines has a long history in a wide variety of dog sports. Obedience, Rally, Conformation, Agility, Nose Work, Tricks, and those are just a few of them!  So we decided that Tuesdays would be our Drop-In Day!  This gives teams an opportunity to train without committing to a six-week class.  Click on the link above for more info on our schedule!

Refund Policy for all classes: Cancelling 14 days prior to the first day of class you will receive a full refund, minus a $10 admin fee.  Less than 14 days prior to the first day of class you will receive no refund

  1. I am looking for a basic puppy obedience class that would start last week in July or first week in August. My new Lab pup will be 10 weeks the first of August.

      Hi Bob,

      I’m afraid that I don’t teach puppy classes. However, I am able to do some in home pet training. If you’d like to schedule a session, please hit my Contact Us page and I’d be happy to discuss it further with you.

    So it looks like the beginning nose work class is full. but there are fun game classes. do the fun game classes require the beginning nose work class first?

      Hi Shawna,

      Sorry that I’m only now just seeing this comment. The Continuing Nose Work Class does require that the dog has been exposed to Nose Work. However, if you are interested in signing up, we can schedule a private session over the winter to start you off. Just email me at

    I have an 8 year old golden retriever that I adopted/rescued who has severe seperation anxiety. I am working with Cold Nose College on this issue. They recommended I try some scentry training to build confidence. Can you suggest a class of yours?

      Hello, unfortunately my puppy classes don’t start for several weeks and he will be too old at that stage. I’d be happy to schedule some private training to get you started however. Please go to my Contact Us page and fill out the Contact Us form to get started. You can also checkout my Private Training page to see my rates etc. Thanks!

      Hi Celena, if your dog is polite around other dogs we have a coupe of classes to choose from. Our Don’t Bite The Vet class as well as out Canine Good Citizenship class are both good options.
