Specialty Training

SmartyPaws dog training accreditations and affiliations

Specialty classes are sports that we teach as requests for them come in. Prices vary, so please contact your trainer if you want to enroll your dog. You’ll need to bring your dog on a leash that’s six feet or shorter.

These are the specialty training classes we currently offer:

  • Rally I – dogs must have completed the Basic Obedience Class.
  • Rally II – dogs must have successfully completed Rally I.
  • Scent Work Classes – Great for the shy or fearful dog. It helps them gain confidence and helps develop team work between dog and handler.
  • Puppy Social Hour – Just for puppies under six months of age. They get to socialize with each other and be introduced to new noises, people, and textures.
  • Conformation Handling – These are are drop-in classes so please contact us for details.

We allow up to two handlers per dog in our classes.
