JunkYard Dogs Enrichment & Learning Workshop
In this workshop we will give your dog a chance to rummage, snuffle, trample and burrow while he uses his super powers to find the object(s) of his desire.
The games in this workshop provide dogs with the opportunity to use their super-power senses to plunge into problem-solving and find stuff they like (food, toys) -- an activity that is extremely pleasurable for them. Humans tend to think that dogs love to eat. While that may be true, most dogs also really enjoy the game of seeking and finding, and if they get to eat what they find, even better!
Your dog will encounter a variety of surfaces, textures, sounds and objects while engaged in a playful, rewarding activity with you, contributing to confidence, optimism, and adaptability. The activities in this workshop will also help you practice the basic skills at both ends of the leash that foster effective communication and cooperation.
** Dogs who struggle with sound sensitivity, fear of novelty, reactivity or resource guarding may not be appropriate for this workshop. Please contact Great Dog so we can assess your dog’s capacities and determine if we can make accommodations for your dog to be successful in this setting.
