  Fun Classes

In addition to our normal training classes, we will now be offering some fun things to do with your dog.


K9 Nosework

Do you know that dogsí noses are so incredible that they are used to hunt for cancer in humans; that dogs are used to locate contraband in luggage at airports; that dogs can track human scent even when the human has gotten in a car and driven off? Pretty incredible stuff and you donít have to have a bloodhound to be amazed by your dogís scenting abilities! There is a new sport called K9 Nosework (aka Urban Hunting) where your dog is taught to locate hidden scents of birch, anise & clove and you can win ribbons. Well, Paw Law is going to take this a step further. Not everyone is competitive and needs ribbons to have fun with their dog. While we are teaching Urban Hunting with the idea that some of our students will want to compete with their dogs in the official sport of K9 Nosework (aka Urban Hunting), we are also going to do some real Urban Hunting so that your dogs can locate your missing wallet or keys. Not everything should be about a $1.99 piece of satin. Does your dog really care about the ribbon? No, your dog just wants to have fun. The best part is that if your dog is taught to urban hunt, it uses its brain and when a dog uses its brain it gets tired, just as tired if you ran the dog for an hour. So if you canít participate in the more active doggy sports or you have a dog that has some physical limitations, K9 Nosework is a great outlet for you and your dog. Try K9 Nosework and let your dog amaze you with his nose.

* Ongoing means that this class is one of Paw Law's "Punch/Training Card" classes. Punch cards are purchased the first day of class and have an expiration date on them. This date is determined by which class you are signing up for to use up 8 punches. After the expiration date, the punch card will have no value. NO EXCEPTIONS. Paw Law's punch cards are NOT transferable to any other dog. Paw Law is NOT responsible for lost cards. If an owner forgets their card, they will be required to pay for class that day (cash, check, or credit card). NO EXCEPTIONS. There are NO refunds for unused punches on a training card.
