Dog Aggression Management
This is a specialized class for dogs who lunge and bark at other dogs, at people or at other things in their environment. Though there is no "cure" for behavior, per se, we can teach dogs alternatives to the lunging/barking, and, depending upon the severity of the problem and the extent to which you do the assigned interventions, the behavior can be changed.

Fun Fridays
If you have taken Beginner Pet Obedience and want an informal, fun and less-structured continuation of training your dog at the MSPCA, this is the class for you! Pay $100 and go to 4 classes every 6 weeks. If you skip 2, no worries! (If you skip 3, you must pay again for another round). The curriculum is not cumulative, so you will miss training fun, but no homework, if you don't go every week.

Nosework (6 Classes)
"Nosework" is the next big thing in dog training! It is a fun sport that involves teaching your dog to follow his nose to find different scents. Based upon the work that police and bomb- and airport-sniffing dogs do, you dog learns first to find the box that has food in it. Over repeated lessons, the food is then paired with a scent, and the dog continues the hunt! The result is a dog who can search a space for that particular smell. Dogs LOVE this sport, as sniffing is something they were born to do! You will smile with pride as you watch your dog learn how to, well...be such a DOG! Your dog will be crated or waiting in your car when it is not their turn; this is the only prerequisite for the class.

In this class, you and your dog will learn behavioral shaping games involving standing on things that move; they will also learn to jump and go through tunnels. Even more important, they will learn to stay and watch their handler and play games while other dogs jump and go through tunnels.
