SmartyPaws Dog Training's class listing reads almost like a college course catalog, with titles such as Manners Skills I and Advanced K9 Nose Work. This is because the staff believes in not just teaching dogs basic manners, but continuing their education in advanced skills classes. Dogs can learn to navigate an agility course or use their noses to sniff out the scent of a misplaced sock. In an indoor, climate-controlled classroom, instructors teach small-group classes or private classes for dogs who need more focused attention.
