Oregon Tails


Oregon Tails utilizes the freedom of a natural environment with balanced structure, skill-building, and socialized play to help canine companions reach their full potential.

Rooted in a blend of horsemanship etiquette and thorough understanding of the way dogs naturally communicate and perceive the world around them, our method focuses on the human factor — how can we, humans, become competent and present guides for our canine companions? Our weekly Pack member Adventures are a beacon for the impact of this approach.

To help humans and their dogs achieve this harmony, we offer hands-on, progressive workshops in Oregon and beyond.



Student of the Dog is a 3-day, 9-hour workshop progression that we offer year-round.

This workshop is designed to help humans and their canine companions of all breeds and skill-levels lay a solid foundation for clear communication, increased trust, and a balanced life.

Spectators are also welcome at all of our workshops. No RSVP necessary.

After many years of discovery, experimentation, and dedicated practice, we are happy to finally have the opportunity to share our tools with you and the dogs in your life. Their creation has been a labor of love, designed to help Beings continue to learn, grow, and enjoy a shared life together.
