Obedience Class Schedule

Winter 2020 session will start January 8th, 2020, and registration will open on December 5th at 8pm. Dogs do not come to class January 8th- this class is for the handlers only.

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.

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.
