North Cariboo K9 offering canine training

Three classes are on offer to provide obedience training, tracking and protection dog seminars

Recent obedience grad class.

North Cariboo K9 is offering three classes over the next few weeks to provide dog training.

The first is a level 1 group obedience class beginning Aug. 12. The cost is $120 plus HST and the course runs for one hour, once a week for six weeks.

The second is a two-day seminar, Aug. 24 – 25 called Tracking through Drive. This seminar gets the dog

using its strongest sense, smell, through the animal’s natural instinct and ability.

The third and final event is a two-day Protection Dog Seminar with Dave Gomme from Edmonton.

Gomme has worked extensively with police K9 units across North America and since he had so much fun in Quesnel, this expert is coming back for his second time this year.

People from Kamloops, Vancouver and Williams Lake have already committed to coming to Quesnel just to attend Gomme’s seminar.

All three seminars are open to anyone wanting to do more and learn more with their dogs.

For information, call 250-983-8682 or find North Cariboo K9 on facebook, or visit the website www.nck9.net.
