Wheelchairs for Canines

Working with a specialist, NCRFC has the ability to provide your canine in need of a wheelchair with access to a custom made wheelchair suited for your dog's needs.

Initially, we provide a measurement and physical to allow us to understand your dog's needs. Next, we will have your dog fitted to a custom model wheelchair with the help of our specialist. Finally, we will do follow up sessions as necessary to make sure the wheelchair is properly fitted. 

Intro & Intermediate Nose Work

K9 Nose Work™ is a wonderful sport based on scent detection techniques. Created in 2006 by  professionals in drug and explosives detection, it emphasizes safety and fun for all involved; even very shy or reactive dogs, who often have a difficult time in classroom settings, can participate and feel welcome. Dog and handler teams work one at a time so that no dog interacts with the other dogs in class. 


In the Intro to Nose Work classes, we focus on building hunting skills using food treats or toys in a variety of environments.
