At the Antique Boat Show in July, I visited the Search Dog North Idaho booth and was impressed that they gave free weekly classes in search, obedience and agility skills. What an opportunity for our 12 month old pup, a Nova Scotia Duck Toller, Pikka. She had just finished 2 obedience classes but still need more training, social skills and challenges! We needed more education and this sounded fun!
In October we attended our first Saturday training session, and it was rewarding for both of us. There were two other pups her age, and we began learning how to bond, meet other dogs, more obedience and agility. The Saturday sessions are so productive and fun for both the dog and owner.
The Search Dog North Idaho Incorporation is a definite plus to the Sandpoint community. Weekly Search & Rescue training for both canine and humans provide and prepare a valuable resource. In the winter months we train on Saturday afternoons; in spring and fall we train in the evenings.
