The Canine Good Neighbour Program is a 12-step test, that when completed successfully, will ensure that one of our most favored companions, the dog, is accepted as a valued member of our communities right across the country. Canine Good Neighbours can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs. The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps. It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler's ability to control the dog. Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.
What is required for testing!
*proof of vaccination certificate. *dog license. *leash not less then 2' nor longer then 6'. *acceptable collars include a well fitting slip, buckle or martingale collar made of fabric, leather or chain all other types of collars are not accepted. *a grooming tool, either a brush or comb. *plastic bag for picking up after your dog. You do not need these items if you are not going for the official certification and rather are just testing your skills.

Shake-a-Paw Scent Instructor will be on site to introduce you to the amazing sport of Scent Detection.
Canine Scent Work or Nosework is a fairly new sport modeled after detection training for professional narcotics or bomb dogs. It offers dog owners an opportunity to allow their dogs to explore their natural scenting ability in a safe and controlled environment. The sport uses the scent of different essential oils that can be easily purchased and stored by the average person.
Dogs are taught to hunt/search for “target odours” in a variety of settings to create a mind challenging and extremely fun game for your dog to play. Training usually begins indoors with box or container searches, and then advances to room searches, outdoor and vehicle searches.
Scent work is suited to all types of dogs and owners whether you practice for fun or competition. Many human and/or canine disabilities are easily accommodated, as are behaviour issues including dog reactivity. Classes and competitions are run so that each search is done individually by one dog and handler team working at a time, allowing dogs with issues to focus and learn. Working without social stressors allows the dog and handler to be free to concentrate on the search. As the sport is relatively “low impact” it is great for young puppies, elderly dogs and dogs with injuries.
