Ready to get started with your training? GREAT! We are, too. The Longsnouts niche is that we love to have F-U-N with our dogs. Sure, manners are important, but don't we all learn faster when our relationships are strong and engaging?

Check your newsletter for any updates! Haven't subscribed? We'd be happy to help, just let us know.

CURRENTLY ON THE DOCKET:

In-person classes are LIVE! Longsnouts prefers to teach classes outside - it's where we are most often with our dogs, so it makes sense. We are, therefore, prepared for social distancing...and have taken lengths to (re)design our classes to make sure everyone feels as safe as possible. We're excited to get back to learning!

Our class sizes are small - typically no more than 10 human/canine pairs - and we encourage all current COVID-19 safety protocols.

NOTE:  Our general rule of thumb for being outside is no inclement weather and temps need to be 'above freezing' (32 F) for winter and that the heat/humidity is below 90F for summer.

:: NEW CLASS SCHEDULE ::

We do things a little differently around here! There are 3 main Longsnouts options:

- Rolling Admissions: means you can jump in when you'd like, no need to wait for a 'start date'

- Play Card Option: we have a 5-class "punch card" where you can try on different styles of classes, just RSVP and let us know when you're coming. Play Card is valid 90 days from purchase, unless discussed with instructor.

- Single Class: our Barn Hunt and Farm Walk classes are available in singles, which means you can try one out without needing to commit (but we'll always welcome you back!)

WEDNESDAYS: 

Barn Hunt @ 6:00pm ** 

Currently, we're running Novice/Open classes (1-2 rats). We'll host some Tunnel workshops, too. Want to practice hanging out in the blind? Join us during the Farm Walk!

Single class purchase available!

SATURDAYS: 

Confident Puppy @ 10:00am. Now Rolling Admission, too!

We LOVELOVELOVE helping to create confident, resilient puppies! Sure, we'll talk about manners; we'll also cover socialization, body awareness, dog & human greetings, and so much MORE !

Building Blocks/AKC Canine Good Citizen prep  @ 11:30am **

We're returning to offering the CGC test...and this class is perfect for prep time! We'll parallel the test items, so all things polite, from walking, to settling, human-dog greetings, and more. 

Building Blocks: Let's Go For A Walk  @ 11:30am **

October 21st, November 11th & December 2nd.

Every 3 weeks, we're dedicating a BB class to focus on going for a walk. Join us to learn our 3-step process for helping walks be less misery and frustration, far more fun and engagement! Part of a Play Card or BB purchase; also available as a single-class purchase.

Ask about our Play Card option...access to training is always our goal!

Ready to register? Excellent! Head here.

SUNDAYS: 

Nosework @ 10:00am ** 

Does your doggo love to use her nose? Do you sometimes feel like your dog 'needs a job'? Join us for some scenting fun, where you'll both learn to sniff out (detection-style!) a scent of your choice.

Play Card & single class purchase available!

Barn Hunt @ 11:30am **

Currently, we're running Novice/Open classes (1-2 rats). We'll host some Tunnel workshops, too. Want to practice hanging out in the blind? Just let us know and we can set it up!

Play Card & single class purchase available!

Rotating Workshop @ 1:00pm **

NEW for autumn 2023, we're going to host all sorts of fun things to try! It could be recalls, emergency stops, shed hunt intro, strength & conditioning...you'll have to check the calendar.

Play Card & single class purchase available!

"Drink With Your Dog"/ Urban Manners @ 3:00pm ** Beginning September 10th

The Longsnouts gang likes to do pretty much everything with a dog, including hanging out on a restaurant patio, camping, or at a friend's house! To do so, we need to help our doggos learn to chill and/or be polite in highly distracting spots...and it's not as intuitive as one might assume. Join us to learn the ins and outs! 

Ask about our Play Card option...access to training is always our goal!

Ready to register? Excellent! Head here.

URBAN PACK WALKS - they're coming back!

Our goal is to host one per month - we're looking at the calendar with some of our fave training groups to set some dates! Free for all to attend, as long as you're willing to follow our guidelines. Fantastic practice for all levels of dogs; we're happy to give you the space or time you need. Are you working towards your AKC Fit Dog? Awesome, we are, too!

Fall 2023 planned Traveling Walks:

- September 23rd @ 1:30pm, Kensington MetroPark. (It was SUPER fun!)

- October 21st @ 1:30pm, Maybury State Park. RSVP for meetup details!

- November 18th @ 1:30pm, location TBD

Weather issues? We will walk if the weather is above freezing (32 F) and *not* raining or heavy snow. RSVPs are required; there is a 10 person/dog limit. You don not have to be a Longsnouts client to join, however, this is not a "class." Pack Walks are a place to practice and Hannah will likely have one of her #PermaDogs in attendance for their own practice. RSVP here.

 

- Stay tuned for spring schedule!

** These classes are rolling admission and Play Card eligible, so you're welcome to join whenever you'd like! Reminder: you have 90 days to use your Play Card, unless you chat with the Team.
