Student of the dog


Spectate the Workshop


While you won’t receive the same benefit as working with your dog, auditing is an excellent opportunity to introduce yourself to the Oregon Tails method, learn the pillars of a strong relationship with your companion, and ask questions of our Lead Handlers.


Reserving your spot online is OPTIONAL. Anyone is welcome to drop-in and pay the fee at the door.

$25 daily   |   3 days of instruction  |   9am-12pm 



Each day of the workshop, we will begin at 9:00am and end at 12:00pm.

To minimize distractions for workshop participants, please arrive a few minutes early to find your seat and settle in before the workshop begins.  


Please note that video or audio recording of any kind is not permitted during the workshop.


Workshops takes place in Scappoose, Oregon — about 35 minutes from downtown Portland.


Spectating costs $25 per day. We accept payment upon arrival using cash or through our Venmo account.


We do permit spectators to bring their canine companions; however, we do ask that all dogs remain on leash while on the property.

If you are making the decision to bring your companion to the workshop, you should feel confident that you are able to manage him or her in a stimulating environment. We also ask that you ensure your companion is not a distraction to workshop participants or other spectators.

What to bring

We encourage you to bring food and water for the day, as well as anything you’ll need to be comfortable sitting outside for the entirety of the workshop.

Spectators have often brought blankets or chairs for seating, hats and sunscreen for sun protection, and layers for extra warmth.
