For ALL CLASSES, the dogs must have their standard immunizations in order to attend. If you have any questions, please call!! Dogs in season cannot attend the classes. You may attend without the dog. Refunds will be given for classes missed because of injury, illness or accident with a written note from your veterinarian.

There will be a minimum of 4 dogs in a class. Should a class not reach the minimum limit, it will be necessary to cancel the class or at the instructor’s discretion. If a class is canceled, all enrollment money will be refunded. We try to keep the number of participants in a class small so as to give everyone personal attention.

No harsh or abusive training will be allowed. We use toys, treats and praise in our training. No shock collars!

If you have any question as to which class you should enroll in, please contact the Obedience Director who will assist you in making a decision according to your interests.
