Give Your Dog A REAL Job

Hi, I have been training dogs for a long time and in the last 10 years I've been training medical alert dogs for seizures, diabetes, lupus, Parkinsons, and many other issues.  I have a chance to get certified as a trainer of Cancer Detection Dogs - a field that may have started 16 years ago when the first dog indicated to cancer to now with a real technology that trains dogs to detect cancel.

The certification class is in November 2016 and costs $4500 just for the class itself.  The class is being delivered in California and I live in Arizona so would also need funds for living during the time of the class.

I have friends and relatives that have cancer, have died from cancer and I would really love to be able to advance the field with nearly 100% early detection of cancer using those dogs I dearly love.  You as a donor to this endeavor would also be able to take credit for advancing this field into the incredible field it will soon be.

Thank you all so much in advance !
Hi, I have been training dogs for a long time and in the last 10 years I've been training medical alert dogs for epilepsy, diabetes, lupus, Parkinson’s, and many other issues.  I also train dogs to assist with PTSD, TBI, MST, mobility/stability, assistance including helping with the laundry, and other forms of assistance dogs.



I have a chance to get certified as a trainer of Cancer Detection Dogs - a field that may have started 16 years ago when the first dog indicated to cancer to now with a real technology that trains dogs to detect cancel. The certification class is in November 2016 and costs $4500 just for the class itself.  The class is being delivered in California and I live in Arizona so would also need funds for living during the time of the class.

I have friends and relatives that have cancer, have died from cancer and I would really love to be able to advance the field with nearly 100% early detection of cancer using those dogs I dearly love.  I would love to have many join me in this endeavor in advancing this incredible field of scent work for dogs. Also as part of this certification class I will be learning how to train for early detection of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.  Both diseases are manageable with medication if caught early enough which is hit or miss with the current methods of detection.

As a special introductory method of raising the funds for this certification course, I would like to offer you a special program in scent detection. This class would be modeled on the work I do with medical alert dogs.  As an example of what I expect from a scent dog, the final test for scent detection work (diabetes, seizures, Lupus, etc.) is to blind fold the dog outside on a breezy day.  The owner (target) of the alert walks away from the dog and walks around the 40’ X 40’ space with the scent articles.  The scent is presented 12 times and the dog must alert on at least 10 of them.

The programs are:

Nosework I – Odor targeting, recognition and detection basics

Nosework II – Odor targeting, recognition and detection advanced

Nosework III -  Odor detection in the service and medical world

Nosework Games and Troubleshooting – games to help with detection as well as introducing other ways to use that fabulous canine nose.

These programs can either be done as a group class or privately.  Group is $250 for 6 weeks and Private sessions are $600 for 6 sessions.  Group classes will be held on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings at 9am.  Group classes are small at no more than 5 dogs.  Private lessons will be done on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 6pm.  My dogs will be part of these programs. My current service dog will be the demo dog for Nosework Games and Troubleshooting.  The service dog in training will be featured in Nosework I and II and the retired service dog will be teaching Nosework III.

All dogs that do the three Nosework programs will be considered first to become Cancer Detection Dogs.  If you would like to join us, please email Jamie at coach @ playyourwayobedience.com for more information and/or forms for the programs.

If you would just like to donate to the cause and bring early Cancer Detection to Tucson, please feel free to donate at https://www.gofundme.com/cancerdetectiondog.

Thank you all so very much in advance !
