We started 2021 slow due to COVID restrictions meaning we had to continue to teach online classes. When COVID first brought everything to a grinding halt in early 2020 it caused us a bit of panic on how we would continue to help our clients. We decided to see it as a blessing in disguise as we had been talking about overhauling our virtual content for a while and this was the push we needed. We jumped in head first and completely redid our online content. While this wasn’t ideal for everyone we were so happy that we had amazing online content to share. We are now extremely proud to offer in depth interactive classes for Obedience and Scent Detection and have gotten really happy feedback from those who have taken the classes.
This summer we added two new classes to our roster. We now offer Shed Hunting, taught by our assistant trainer Alyssia, and Agility. We had so much fun designing this new curriculum and even MORE fun teaching it to the amazing students who came out to give it a try!
In July we once again were able to host a 2 day, all level, Scent Detection trial. We returned to Ultimate Safety in Olds. Judge Richard Hatchman joined us from BC and spent the time laughing and challenging us all with fun, fair hides. Many of our competitors were successful, earning new titles and some very large, fancy ribbons as well for Championships and more.
In a year that started out quiet we ended it booming with 4 full Basic Obedience classes & 1 fun Advanced Obedience class that have recently wrapped up in December. We find ourselves once again gratefully reflecting on the successes of 2021.
We want to say sincerely, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! We truly have the BEST clients here at Canine Coaching. Thank you for trusting us with your learning and with your dogs. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.
