If a class is FULL, please register for the wait list. If we have enough people on the wait list, we will open up another class.

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. Junior handlers must be at least 12 years of age to participate in our classes. Although the junior is likely fabulous handling his/her own dog, it is hard to expect the maturity, in a child less than 12, to handle all the different kinds of interactions between dogs in an excited class situation. We do encourage family members to come and view the classes, and to actively participate in the training at home.

  2. Please do NOT bring dogs not registered in the classes to the training hall. Our class night is very busy, and we have no liability waiver or vaccination status for dogs that are not participating in the current session.

Please read our payment, cancellation, and refund policy.
