Competitive Canine Sports

Canine Sports Training

And other extra-curricular programs!  Non-competitive Trick Dog titles, advanced certificates, competitive (or not) Rally-O, foundation skills for competition obedience, agility, canine freestyle (dancing dogs), canine disc (frisbee), and more!

Rio earned the highest title in WCR Rally-Obedience, the ARCHMX!  He was also ranked as the #19 dog in the country in 2015 (2016 we took off to raise puppy Oswin).  ARCHMX Rio RL1X3, RL2X2, RL3X2, CL1, CL2-H, NTD, ITD, ATD, ETD, CGC, BA, MA.



Here at SJC, we cater to people who enjoy training their dog and want to do more with them!  Whether you would like to pursue non-competitive options like the Canine Good Citizen certificate, the three degrees (B.A., M.A., Ph.D.) of the Canine Life And Social Skills program (CLASS), trick dog training, or Therapy Dog work or you would like to pursue competitive dog sports like Rally-O, we can take you and your dog to the next level!


We offer group classes and private instruction geared toward taking training to the next level with new and fun activities! We will meet the needs of each individual student and their goals.  If Jane and Rex are just looking to get involved with Rally-O casually and to practice basic skills in a new and fun way, that’s fantastic!  We can help them learn to have a good time and improve their skills.  If Joe and Fluffy want to become a nationally ranked, highly precise, and skilled team competing in Rally-O, we can help them reach those goals as well.

What we have discovered is that training with a goal in mind, whether the CLASS  degrees, a trick dog title, or an official dog sport title, helps motivate students to continue to work with their dog.  This partnership, working towards a goal, has this great effective of very seriously improving the bond between dog and handler. They truly become a team, whether pursuing competitive adventures or not!  We love seeing students getting pulled into a sport or activity and having a blast with their dog!
