Lose Something? Why your dog could find it easier than you

Jan 7, 2016

Dog Training is More Than Just Basic Obedience

Next time you are frantically searching the house for your missing iPhone, car keys, or a lost leather glove while the dog sleeps on the couch with one eye opened and watching you, just know the dog could solve the mystery faster.

You mean my lazy dog that couldn’t “sit” or “fetch” on command? Yes and here’s why: That four-legged couch potato has 245 million—yes, we’re talking millions—more scent receptors than you or me! Think about that for a minute.

Not only do dogs have a superior sniffer, but they are smarter and more willing to learn than we give them credit for sometimes. Professional dog training doesn’t have to end with basic obedience.

Advanced training and enrichment activities are a great way to reinforce basic skills and manners while providing

an outlet for active dogs or the pampered couch potato that needs a little motivation to learn and showcase their skills.

Dogs want to learn, be challenged, have fun, and experience the joys of a job well done. Enrichment toys and activities are designed to challenge dogs to think, problem solve and stay active through brain games, cha

llenging sensory work, and structured athletics and play.

  • IQ Testing & Brain Testing Games
  • Treat Games
