Peg with Chi

Nosework has been the perfect sport for my high drive dog. I have come to "trust my dog" and Clarity is more delighted with every search she does. We now have a wall full of ribbons and certificates!
   Leea F. Lenox, MA

My main sport with my dogs has always been agility.  I wanted to try something new and we are totally hooked now and love our lessons with Peg!  I find it to be a great bonding activity and it really helped to boost my dog's confidence too.

Archie has always been a nervous, somewhat fearful pup. He now approaches new situations with more confidence and can't wait to "search"!  Peg is an extremely knowledgeable, creative and intuitive instructor with both her canine and human clients.

I got into nosework because Aspen is quite the handful. It is something I can do with him that is one on one since all dogs search without other dogs around. It's a great bonding experience.
   Tammy C., Pittsfield, MA

I love Nose Work because it's something I can do with both my dogs. The confidence Merlin has gained through his Nose Work successes has translated into every area of our lives. And Sadie quivers with joy at the mere mention of 'practice.' We love our classes with Peg!"
   Becky S, Claverack, NY

Nosework has been great for my two dogs, Hank and Norman. It has increased their self-confidence and provides a stimulating activity that can be done anywhere. Plus, they love it. It's much more fun than typical obedience training, and encourages them to work independently and use their brain (and nose!).

Working with Peg has been amazing. She always has the dog's best interests at heart, and communicates that in a gentle but effective way.
