Scent Work

 

Home to Vermont's most extensive scent lab, equipped with a variety of walls, scent boxes, pans, wheels, unique hides, and automatic reward systems to start or polish your dog on the detection & recognition of odor, and other search problems. We teach detection for a variety of purposes whether your dog is actively working in detection (police, search & rescue, etc.), or simply as an enrichment activity to do with your pet!

Vermont Working Dog Institute

The Vermont Working Dog Institute is geared towards canine handlers working operationally in public service jobs, as well as other canine professionals and experienced working-dog handlers. The VWDI offers a plethora of resources including a large variety of detailed search options, functional sources for real-life detection situations, tactical obstacles, bite development and more from fundamentals up through masters levels. 

Limited Boarding

Our facility was built with reactive dogs in mind. While we are not a "boarding kennel" we do offer limited  boarding to our clients and service dogs who cannot safely be left in a regular kennel environment.
