Dog Sports

Celebrate the joy of life with a dog. Participate together in Dog Sports classes at Pets in Motion. Join our APDT Rally Level 1 class to team up with your pup for this exciting, fast-moving course competition. Just follow the numbered signs and direct your dog to Sit-Down-Sit, Straight Figure 8, Send Over Jump and Recall Over Jump. Just right for dogs of any breed or ability level, this exciting class prepares your dog/person team for actual competition. Or, if you think your dog has a super sniffer, why not sign him up for K9 Nose Work™? This new dog sport teaches your dog to search for something you want him to find, and tell you when he’s found it. Learn all about it here: National Association of Canine Scent Work.

A Client Story:

Ready, Set, Sniff!

Roberta knows her dog sports. A regular competitor with her two Labradors in Agility, Obedience and Rally and Tracking, she was ready for something new. “I love watching dogs use their noses. You let them go and they just do it. I really wanted to try Nose Work,” she said. But with the labs settling into retirement, it was up to Petey to sniff out the sport. Roberta’s feisty Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was already five years old when he put his nose to the ground for the first time. “Anne keeps the dogs really interested and motivated. And it’s all about positive reinforcement and fun.” Fetch the whole story.
