Classes

All dogs attending classes are required to have up-to date vaccinations, including BORDETELLA (kennel cough).

Classes will be held on Wednesday’s or Thursday’s at 6:30PM.
The day of registration does not count as a lesson, it will be only registration and lectures to do with training, and overview of the curriculum of the classes.

NOTE: You do not bring your dog with you the day of registration.
The exception to this is the “Junior puppy” class, where you bring your puppy the first time.

Private Lessons

Private lessons can be done any time it is convenient for you, and is done all year. Private lessons are best if your dog has an issue that needs to be dealt with right away, or if you want to get your puppy or newly acquired dog off to a good start when there are no group lessons available right then.

Class Registration Dates

Because of continued  restrictions and added concern of a second wave of the covid-19 pandemic, I have decided to NOT have any group lessons this fall, with yours and my health in mind,  but I will still do private lessons to help you with your dogs.
