Wag It! Games
See Spot Grin is excited to add Wag It! Games to the class schedule. If you're looking for more fun to have with your dog you'll find it here. Wag It! Games is founded on the relationship between dog and handler, and focuses on team work, connection, communication and confidence building. Whether you're looking to compete or simply take a class to enjoy with your four legged friend, Wag It! Games includes seven games you can play at home or in competition.
At the Novice level of Sniff It your dog will search for target odors like birch, anise, clove, cypress, or simply his treats! At the advanced levels he’ll look for handler scent, eventually searching for multiple hides using plastic, wooden and metal items. Sniff It is offered through our Intro to K9 Nose Work® class.
In Quarry Quest your dog will hunt for sheep’s wool buried in a complex environment that include common household items. At the Novice level he’ll search for ground hides. Advanced levels include elevated and multiple hides. No live prey. No hay. And we play indoors!
Shadow Skills & No Need for Speed
Shadow Skills include exercises in heeling, incorporating a variety of twists, turns and side changes. No Need for Speed involves building teamwork while teaching the dog to negotiate obstacles and equipment without the element of speed.
See Spot Grin offers a great introduction into the world of Wag It! Games Shadow and No Need for Speed skills divisions. An upbeat presentation combines the ground work involved in various rally, obedience, freestyle and agility handling skills with building the coordination, body awareness in the dog along with the trust and patience in the handler, and makes for an exciting way to build teamwork and connection.
Looking to build impulse control while learning a new game? In Dog Ball the dog directs an exercise ball through a course that includes gates and pens. Teaching your dog how to control the movement of the ball is the goal, and a great exercise in self control. Inspired by sheep herding, this sport is fun for dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes.
Enjoy spending time in the water with your dog? You and your dog will have endless fun with Water Skills. Learn to navigate your way through a course of twists, turns and side changes with your dog swimming right next to you. It's great exercise for human and dog!
