We offer a few different training options ranging from our famous Puppy Headstart training, to sport specific seminars and the very recent addition of our Xtreme Air Dock Jumping lessons! More information on each is available below.
Dock Diving is the super popular sport where dogs who love to swim and fetch are in their glory. Using positive reinforcement and a gradual teaching process, dogs are taught to run down a 40 foot dock to jump off the end into our 21 x 41 foot pool. We are currently hosting lessons and open practices, open to all healthy dogs over 6 months of age of any breed, and host sanctioned Xtreme AirDogs events during the summer months. Please check out our dock diving page for more info, scheduling and prices. Our background: We have been dabbling in dock jumping for ages but began competing in 2013. Just this last year we became more serious seeking out professional mentorship to resolve holes in our training. In 2015 we trained the BC Amateur X-treme Air Champ, the BC Semi-Pro X-treme Air Champ, the BC Semi Pro X-treme Vertical Champ, the Canadian Amateur X-treme Air Champ, and the Canadian PRO X-treme Air Champ. In 2016 our own dogs earned Canadian Championships in the Xtreme Pro and Semi-Pro divisions with a number of students earning BC and Canadian championships in different divisions.
Group Lessons & Seminars occur regularly with different focuses, taught by Erin & Tim or by other especially talented instructors from outside the local area. Agility, Obedience, Retriever Training, Fitness & Conditioning are all areas that we cover in group or private lessons. In 2017 we will be introducing some practical nosework training as well (shed antler hunting and barn hunt).
Puppy Headstart Training is offered to purchasers of Eromit puppies. Puppies who are enrolled stay with us for a minimum of 2 months of training before they join their new family. This is ideal for US puppy buyers who are dealing with strict new import quarantine requirements, or for families who don’t have the skills or time to manage a brand new baby puppy. Headstart puppies are raised as one of our own so they are well socialized, learn house training and basic manners/obedience skills as well as introductions to specific training such as retrieving, agility or nosework foundations as desired by their owner.
