Obedience Class Schedule

Winter session will start, January 25, 2023 and registration will open online on January 4, 2023 at 8pm. Puppies and Dogs in Level 1 do not attend the first night.

Class fee will be $175.00, which includes HST.

We do not have any sessions throughout the summer but we look forward to seeing you and your dog at our fall, winter and spring sessions! Click on any class name for more details. Click here for a description of all our obedience classes. For further information please contact Cathy Lee at .

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. At this time and due to COVID we are restricting the number of people in the hall, therefore we will not be allowing spectators for this session. One dog one handler.
  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.
