Do you want your dog to be a well mannered part of your family? Beginning obedience can help you achieve this goal. The class is a 6 week program that will teach you what you will need to know for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. Canine Good Citizen tests will be offered periodically throughout the year.

Therapy Dog Class

Therapy dog training can be very rewarding for you and your dog. If you are interested in this class please contact me for more information. Proper obedience training is a prerequisite for this class.


The nosework program is a fun sport that can help to keep your dogs busy during the cold winter months, help your dog with confidence building, or just an activity for you and your dog to build that human animal bond. Nosework uses the natural abilities of the dogs to hunt and use their noses to find things. Although this sport gets it’s inspiration from detection work it is meant for everyone, including those with no experience! Here at Nose 2 Tail we have Group Classes, Private Lessons and hold Nosework events through out the year. Check out how easy it is to get started “playing” the game with your dog today!
