Professional Dog Training and Puppy Socialization

If you’re anything like us, you have an incredible connection with your dogs. When you’re working or away from home you want to make sure they’re being trained and socialized by someone who will love them just as much as you do. That’s why we started Canine Partners of Cape Cod, to give you peace of mind while you’re unavailable or too busy to train and socialize your new puppy.  


Providing obedience & social training for your puppy...

K9 Nose Work® is a fun, safe dog sport which creates a deeper bond and mutual enjoyment between you and your K9 companions. Learn the basics of this new and immensely popular dog sport. Classes are open to any dog and person of any age or physical ability.  This sport provides a fun way to spend quality time with your dog while building confidence for shy and timid dogs.  It challenges dogs to use their nose to hunt for the odors we want them to find; in the beginning it is the “primary” odor of food and then later on in subsequent sessions the search transitions to the desired odors - birch, anise, and clove.  Handlers learn to observe the dog’s body language to determine where the odor is hidden.

In the Intro 6-week session we build the dog’s desire to hunt using fun techniques for dog and handler while building a positive working relationship between you and your dog. We train you to read and understand your dog’s unique & subtle behaviors while hunting, problem solving, and communicating when they have located the source of the hunt.  The exposure to different things and the hunting and problem solving benefit timid and shy dogs by building confidence while also helping to calm the more energetic or reactive dog. 

Subsequent 6-week sessions progress through different levels where dogs learn to hunt in various interior areas, a wide range of exterior areas, on the outer surfaces of different types of vehicles, and different types of containers;   the goal being competition in nose work trials or just having more advanced fun with your dog. 

Pre-registration is required as class size is limited to allow each student multiple searches.  Classes will have lecture and practical components.

Private Instruction and Trial Prep
