What to Bring to Class

Collar and Leash - Your dog should have a properly fitting collar or harness. Leashes should be six feet long and made of either leather or nylon. Flexi-leashes and chain leashes are not acceptable. If you are not sure you have the proper equipment you may consult our training director on your first day of class.

Treats - Our classes use food rewards to reinforce correct behaviors. Please bring tasty treats that your dog enjoys cut into small pieces for training.

Don’t feed your dog before class time. Your dog will work better if he doesn’t have a full stomach. He will get training treats to tide him over until he has his dinner at home.

Water Bowl - Please bring a water bowl so your dog may have a drink during breaks.

Copy of your dogs vaccination record - For your first day of class during registration.

Class Guidelines

Dog's Age - Minimum age for attending classes is 4 months for puppy kindergarten or 6 months for all other classes with proof of current vaccinations.

Trainer's Age - Trainers should be at least 16 years of age and able to control the dog effectively. Well behaved children are welcome come and watch, but bring a chair for them so they can sit while they observe the class.

Courtesy - Don’t let your dog invade another dog’s personal space. When your dog is in class, she should be paying attention to you, not playing with other dogs. This is not only basic obedience school courtesy, but it is also important for safety. Every dog should have three feet in front, behind, and on either side of her. You should be aware of your dog and where she is at all times.
