  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 lisa@kudosforcanines.com.

    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?
