All dogs must complete an evaluation with Kara before they may be admitted into a group class.

Please email us to schedule your evaluation today!

Most group classes have two options for enrollment:

When you reserve a class on Gingr, all classes are listed twice "Basic Obedience (5-week series)" or "Basic Obedience (open enrollment). You must select the correct class for you based on the definitions below.

Option 1: Series (5-, 4- or 3-class series)

This option is to attend a class consecutively for the entirety of the series (3-5 classes, one class per week). By selecting a series class, you must pay for the entire series upfront. There is a $5 discount for a series where you will pay $30 x 5 classes = $150.

Option 2: Open enrollment

This option is to attend class on specific dates within a 3- or 5-week class session. This is the best option for those who cannot attend a class consecutively every week and would like to select specific dates within a 3- or 5-week class session.

Class: Intro to DK Nosework
Description: This is a one-hour group class for dogs and is only available to dogs whom Kara has admitted to the class after an evaluation session. Come learn how to challenge your dog in a fun new way plus build their confidence and ability to work independently. This will be Kara’s own take on nose work and is not AKC or NACSW Nose work or moving towards competition. Dogs will not interact and be on-leash but will be around one another during class. We will go over the basics of teaching dogs to reliability search for a scent (food) and then eventually odor. Please bring your dog, a separate training collar like a flat collar or harness and two types of high-value treats.
