Ahhh . . . a new year. A clean slate. A chance to start over and do everything right this time.
Perhaps your new challenge comes in the form of a new dog, either a new puppy or a newly adopted rescue dog. With your new pup, perhaps it’s time to begin training. Perhaps you didn’t get a new pup, but are wanting to build on the relationship with the dog you already have
We all strive to be good pet parents, but busy schedules and competing priorities often make it hard to find time for training, exercising and bonding. But this year will be different! Consider joining one of our classes to help you become the pet parent you always wanted to be!
4 Classes Beginning THIS Week! Puppy, Tricks, Family Dog Level 1, and Family Dog Level 2.

Fast CAT is a new venue for the AKC in which your dog is timed on a 100 yard dash and you are scored based on your dogs’ speed! (Don’t worry, there are different height divisions).

Shasta Dogs also has Straw bales ready to go for their… Haystack Hunt at this event. Haystack hunting each day will be 9:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00. Dogs and handlers work as a team to locate rats (which are always safely held in aerated tubes) hidden in a maze of straw or hay bales. As long as your dog can fit through an 18″ wide by bale-height tall tunnel, he’s eligible!
