Pooch Perfect is expanding its toolbox
September 24, 2013
Make room in the garage! Our lead trainer is taking an apprentice course from a leader in Canada's scent-detection industry, Teresa Lewin who is affiliated (among others) with the Sporting Detection Dogs Association of Canada. Check out the course poster here (It's a PDF; 6.1MB). Scent-detection work is an amazing way to build confidence in reactive and anxious dogs and strengthen your bond with your dog. We can't wait to make it a part of your dog's rehabilitation!
