    Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early for your class. This will enable you to have time to walk your dog and check in with your instructor.

    Please wear closed toed shoes, such as sneakers, NO Flip Flops

    Do not feed your dog during the 4 hours before class. Feed your dog after class.

    Bring some dry dog kibble or other tiny treats (no bigger than a cheerio ) such as hot dogs, or string cheese and a cheerful attitude to class with you each week.

    Dogs in Heat, sick or injuried

    If your bitch comes in heat while entered in a training class, you may still bring her to class as long as she wears doggie panites.  For injured and ill dogs. you should attend the classes so that the lessons may be practiced at home.

    Uncontrollable, Disruptive or Aggressive Dogs

    Any dog that is uncontrollable, that disturbs the class, or is aggressive will be dismissed; or at the discretion of the instructor, the owner may be asked to muzzle the dog or work the dog in a separate area.

    We will make every effort to help you get your dog under control. However, we cannot accept the liability of aggression. If necessary, the handler and dog may be referred to an animal behaviorist.

    Dog Walking Area

    Make sure your dog is walked before each class to prevent accidents. Each owner is responsible for cleaning up after his dog. Please pick up after your dog and dispose of the waste bag in designated container. Thank you for helping us to maintain our beautiful facility and surroundings.
