ALL DOG SPORTS NIGHT AT TELLING TAILS TRAINING CENTER IN FRYEBURG, ME
Friday, June 15, 2018 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Does your dog have too much energy and needs something to do? Did you ever wonder how people discover their dog's special talents? Then take this opportunity to bring your dog to the All Dog Sports Night on Friday, June 15, 2018 between 5:00PM and 7:00PM at Telling Tails Training Center located at 285 Main St. in Fryeburg, ME. This is a free event.
There will be opportunities for you to try your dog in each sport.
What to bring: your well-behaved dog on a regular 6 foot leash (no retractable leashes, please) attached to a flat collar or a body harness, and lots of small, high-value treats that your dog likes! Treat pouches are recommended.
Come and get a peek into what happens in tricks class. We will bring out lots of fun props and you will see how much your dog can learn in a short period of time. Look for us where you see platforms, buttons, buckets, and tubes! Bring your clicker if you use one.
K9 NOSE WORK
What's the very first thing your dog does when he goes outside? Sniff!! Why not put that skill to good use using the method that many search, rescue, and detection dogs are trained by. The dog's sense of smell is absolutely amazing and how they can determine one smell from another and locate it in a room will surprise you. Any dog can do K9 Nose Work and most dogs absolutely love to do it!
If you have ever watched a dog and handler on an Agility course, there is no question that they are having fun! Agility is a great activity for dogs with an overload of energy. Many shelters use Agility obstacles to help dogs gain confidence and come out of their shells. Send your dog through tunnels and over jumps; try out the weave poles and A-frame. Check out Agility to see if it’s a good match for you and your dog.
WAG IT GAMES
Wag It Games are exercises to get your dog's tail wagging because he is having so much fun learning new tricks and skills! Exercises can be performed by dogs of any age and range of motion and can be modified for disabled dogs or handlers for success. The two divisions of Wag It Games we cover are Shadow Skills - performing various maneuvers with your dog on a course, and Obstacle Skills (No Need for Speed) where you send your dog through tunnels and hoops, over jumps, and much more. The bonus is that you are actually practicing obedience, only in a fun way!
Bring your best friend out for a free night of fun and games and see if there is a sport you would like to take a class on!
