Welcome to See Spot Grin

Here's a shout out to all the teams of two and four leggers who recently started classes at See Spot Grin. Thanks for trusting us with your dogs.  We're glad you're here! 

Help us welcome them. If you see a new face, be sure to introduce yourself!

Happy Birthday to these Grinners!


We hope your birthday is as special as you are!

Home Made Deliciousness is waiting for your dog in the See Spot Grin freezer! Turkey liver brownies, peanut butter molasses treats, pork brownies and dehydrated beef liver have all been shared through our goodie exchange.

Here’s how you can participate:

  1. Pick up one of our recipe cards in the classroom.

  2. The next time you bake for your dog make a double batch.

  3. Fill a sandwich bag with the deliciousness you made.

  4. Fill out the recipe card and attach it to the bag.

  5. Swap it out for one of the other treat bags in the See Spot Grin classroom.

  6. Watch your dog devour his new treats!

Join The Great Grinner’s Good Exchange today. Your dog will thank you for it.

Sniff It Trial League

Friday night Sniff It League start up again in September! Join us for three weeks of competitions: Sept 20, Oct 4, and Oct 11. Your dog can sniff for treats, or a specific odor of your choice. This video shows what a Sniff It competition is like.

Performance Scent Dogs Trial


Our 9/28 and 9/29 Performance Scent Dogs trial filled quickly, but there’s still time to volunteer! It’s a great way to get in on the action and learn more about nose work, and we could use the help. Contact our PSD Trial Volunteer Coordinator if you can lend a hand.
