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!

    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.
