Myotherapy massage is a non-invasive technique, which means no needles, electrical current machines, or any other invasive procedure. Myotherapy massage is done using the hand, knuckles and fingers to massage and alleviate taut muscle bands and muscular knots known as trigger point body. Light stretching is also applied once these trigger points are relieved.

By ridding the body of these taut, painful bands and knots, your canine companion can regain flexibility, strength, and endurance.

Massage and myotherapy comforts tired muscles and reduces the potential for cramping and post-exercise soreness, for the canine athlete. Massage helps prepare physically for the event and reduces the chance of injury.

Intro to Nose Work - Click Here To Enroll
       - Presented by: Robin Lash CPDT-KA

Intro to Nose Work

What is nose work?

Canine Nose Work is a new detection style sport designed to utilize your dog’s natural hunting and searching abilities.  In nose work, dogs are trained to find a specific target odor within a search area.  Since Nose Work involves using your dog’s natural instincts it can be taught to any dog regardless of age, or skill level.  This is a sport your dog was born to do!

The purpose of this 8 week Introduction to Nose Work class is to teach your dogs to search including: containers, corners, and elevation.  Teams will be introduced to a variety of search areas including interior, exterior and vehicle searching. Dogs work independently of the handler…they are after all the experts!  Handlers will learn to recognize when their dog is on the scent and practice their handling on and off leash. Each run will be geared to the individual needs of the dog.

Benefits for the dog:

  • physical and mental exercise
  • pure joy at practicing what they were born to do
  • environmental confidence for fearful and reactive dogs

Prerequisites: none, any dog of any age or skill level may participate!

Ruff Rovers - Click Here To Enroll
       - Presented by: Robin Lash CPDT-KA

Ruff Rovers

This group class is specifically for dogs that react to other dogs barking, lunging and/or growling.  These behaviors can stop you from walking your dog, taking your dog out in public, or attending group training classes. Reactive dogs will typically react due to some degree of fear or anxiety not because they are aggressive or unfriendly dogs!  In this class we will work on desensitizing the dog to triggers and working on replacement behaviors.  This 8 week class is limited to 4 dogs and has 2 instructors.

Skills Taught:

  • Identifying Triggers and desensitizing triggers
  • Breaking patterns of behavior
  • Keeping your dog below threshold
  • Mat work
  • Look at that
