Register For A Scent Work Class

Registration Opens March 1st

All classes are listed below. Please select the class you want to register for and either pay online or be prepared to bring payment with you to the first class (check or cash). All classes are 6 weeks in length except as noted - please note the dates of the classes carefully.

 

Class cost is listed below. Cost to pay online has a service fee, which is reflected in the cost below. You can select "pay in person".

Material presented in class builds on the previous week, so it's important to plan to attend class. It is your responsibility to attend and missed classes are not credited forward. If a class has to be canceled due to environmental conditions or emergency, a makeup class will be available.

Classes start the week of March 16th and go for 6 weeks. Maximum of 6 dogs in one class. If the minimum is not met (4 teams), the class may be canceled.

  • Introduction to Scent Work Classes - I will be offering a unique online introduction class. This class will be offered on a Facebook Platform and students will require a Facebook account to participate.

    • As a bonus, I will be holding 3 Drop-In classes to support this class. Drop-in classes are not required, but can be support for questions or in-person troubleshooting. They will be on March 11th (6:30pm), March 19 (7:30pm), and April 9th (7:30pm).

    • If you are interested in this class, please sign up below and I will send you more information including how to log in. We will cover how to video and how to do an online class in our first few days of class!
