Spirit Ridge's N' Sonic Boom Van Arek Rock earns his Advanced Scent Detection title!

On November22, 2014, our own N' Sonic Boom Van Arek ("Sonic") earned his Advanced Scent Detection title under the SDDA - at a trial held at Jane Book's Obedience school in Beamsville, Ontario.

Below is a picture of our proud Sonic with our judge Mr John Mairs holding his title rosette and proud handler Jim Tsitanidis.

For more information on our scent detection classes, please click on our 'Services' and read all about this fun sport.  We continuously start new classes and this is a sport ideally suited for dogs that desperately need a 'job' as well as dogs that are reactive to other dogs, elderly, handicapped, shy and generally not good in group environments since this is a solitaire dog sport.  You can also get more information on scent detection from the SDDA website:
