Dog Sports – Fun with your Dog!

AGES 18+

There are hundreds of ways old dogs, young dogs, rescue dogs, poorly socialized, small, medium, large, and all dogs can have fun with their owners. Jan has been awarded titles and is experienced in dog sports venues with all breeds. We will be sampling the ‘Dog Sports’ listed below:

  • Beginning Fast CAT® (no cats involved)/Lure Coursing: Timed dashes where dogs run one at a time, chasing a lure.
  • Retrieving on command
  • Fetch for fun
  • Using noses while on leash (good for young & old dogs)
  • Tracking
  • Therapy Dog introduction
  • Agility
  • Trick Dog
  • Basic Dog first aid
  • Disaster preparedness for your animals

We will sample sports with your dog understanding the limitations they might have.
