Doggie Parkour with Leena Starts Wednesday March 6@12pm
Walking may be the best part of you and your dog’s day, why not boost it with little parkour? Dog parkour is a great way to boost confidence and build and strengthen your relationship. Dog parkour uses safe objects in the environment (urban or rural) that a dog interacts with by standing or jumping on, going under, around, through and many other actions. Dog parkour is non- non-competitive sport and increases a dog’s confidence and fitness while emphasizing safety first.

Nose work classes
FuNoseWork: Beginner nose work class at Pet Food Express on 1152 Blossom Hill in San Jose Starts February 23@7:30pm
This class is held at Pet Food Express at 1152 Blossom Hill Rd in San Jose. In this six week class we will get you started on teaching your dog to find specific scent items. Nose work is a great way to give your dog mental stimulation and will help fullfil their biological needs. It is a great confidence building class for both your dog and you. It is fun to do on rainy days and or hot days or when you do not have time to exercise your high energy dog, just 15 min of having your dogs find hides does the trick for both my agility dogs. This class is for dogs four months and older, all dogs have had all their up to date shots, all dogs need to be dog and people friendly (ask me about great online nose work classes to do). Dogs need to be wearing a flat collar and or a harness and you would need a leash that is at least 10ft long. A nose work kit will be provided!
