HERE’S YOUR CHANCE FOR BEGINNING NOSEWORK…  WE ARE DOING AN INTRO TO NOSEWORK CLASS STARTING ON 10/7 AT 11:00 am at Waggin’ Tails Lounge at 18968 Ventura Boulevard Tarzana, CA 91356!

We may have a space available in our Intro to Odor/Continuing level also in Tarzana with Jo Trent starting 10/7 so if you are planning to attend this make sure we have your registration in!

Continuing Nosework w/Barbara Schwerdt at our Burbank location is starting on 10/14 and is already full but we are taking names for the waiting list!

TARZANA BEGINNING Saturday morning, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED CLASS STARTS 10/13.  BEGINNING IS ALMOST FULL SO GET YOUR REGISTRATIONS IN!  This will be our last Tarzana class of the year finishing just before thanksgiving!

Focus on agility (Monday night in October) is and Intermediate level course.  It takes place at Balboa Park by the agility course.  It is a four week only course on impulse control!  This class focuses heavily on distractions (particularly the ones found in agility class), like other dogs running and people running, park activities, etc.

Everyone starts at beginning!  Intermediate gets you prepared for AKC Canine Good Citizen skills, and teaches good manners in public, so you can go onto Therapy dog work, Agility, and other more complicated dog sports! Focus on Agility is for more work with distractions (usually after Intermediate) and Advanced gets you to that, oh so coveted, OFF LEASH work!  If you think your dog will never get there you are wrong…many of our students thought that previously, and are working off leash now!

There are more classes at our locations in Burbank (Sunday), West Van Nuys (Sunday and one weekday), and Northridge Park (Wednesday night) coming in November and then we take a short break over the holidays!  Stay tuned for announcements regarding Rally Obedience, Tricks class, and more fun and games classes in the New Year!  As always get all the details at!

Obediently yours,
