BSA Classes

A social atmosphere can benefit both sides of the leash. Dogs pick up behavioral cues all day long at The Watering Bowl, and we bring that philosophy into our classes at Butt Sniffers Academy.

There are several options to explore based on your dog’s experience level, and we encourage you to master as many as you can to strengthen your bond, challenge your dog and meet other members of our cage-free canine community.


PUPPY CLASS

Puppies have their own set of needs and widely varying agendas at any given moment. Coaching them together helps the pups and their owners learn from each other in a social, yet structured setting.

You and your new best friend will learn about how to care for a puppy as well. We’ll discuss puppy-centric topics such as chewing, listening and, of course, potty training. And given their attention spans, we may revisit these topics more than once.

We’ll spend six weeks improving behavior and building relationships. By the time graduation rolls around, you’ll be amazed by what the two of you can accomplish together. And it’s only the beginning.

BASIC OBEDIENCE

Repetition is what it’s all about. So is repetition. That’s why Basic Obedience offers a much-needed refresher course, or starting point, for dogs of all education levels.

This is our most popular class, probably because it addresses a wide range of challenges. We work on sitting, staying, leash manners, coming when called and several other common issues that all dog owners face.

INTERMEDIATE

For those who already know a thing or two about a thing or two, we offer a more challenging, intermediate curriculum. Sign up for this honors course if you have a gifted student who is eager to expand their knowledge.

This class expands on many of the challenges addressed in the Basic Obedience class, and it introduces distractions to the curriculum, so your dog can shine in a variety of environments.

Requires completion of Basic Obedience or an evaluation from one of our trainers.

AGILITY

This is for the high flyers. The daredevils. The athletes looking for a challenge. It’s your chance to take your dog through obstacles and learn amazing tricks that will impress even themselves—all while strengthening your dog’s obedience skills. In fact, it’s also a great confidence-builder for dogs experiencing any anxiety issues. Plus, it’s just plain fun.

“What is great about the classes is that they are low pressure and help make training fun for you and your dog. Training is my dog’s favorite activity and I like classes where he can learn new things in a relaxed setting.”
