Fall Quarter Class Schedule

Learning to interact with other dogs and pay attention to commands and instructions is a key skill for any dog. Class size is limited to ensure personal attention AND, for all of our standard courses (6 weeks or longer), we offer complimentary doggie daycare on the day of class. With over 50 courses covering everything from obedience (basic to advanced), behavior modification, sports, fun & games and public appearances, we have a class for you!

VACCINES / ILLNESS – You must provide proof of required vaccinations in order to participate. For off-leash puppy classes, pups must be 10 days past their first DHPP vaccination. For ALL OTHER CLASSES, the following vaccinations are required: Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Canine Influenza (H3N2) and Bordatella. Any dog that shows signs of illness will be removed. Please do not bring your dog to class if they are vomiting, have diarrhea, are sneezy or coughing.

The CLASS ENTRANCE is under the black awning at the back of the building.

ONLY CLASSES FOR THIS QUARTER ARE LISTED ON THIS PAGE. As always, please contact us if there is a class you want to see offered or if you would like to be contacted as soon as the next quarter is published and online.

GROUP CLASSES

Our OFF LEASH PUPPY CLASS is the most important class you can take with your dog and provides the foundation for a lifetime of positive memories together.

These 4 week classes are open to pups once they have received their first round of vaccinations and are a MINIMUM of 10 weeks old and up to 20 weeks or 25 pounds. Off-leash Puppy IS NOT an obedience class. It is a socialization and “life with a dog” class. Classes are taught off-leash and are designed to establish a foundation of success, learn how to set-up your home for a puppy, prevention of problem behaviors, health and wellness and critical socialization skills.

Our off-leash puppy class runs year-round (NO CLASS ON MAJOR HOLIDAYS) and is open registration! You and your pup can join at any time. After completion, you and your pup can move to our S.T.A.R. Puppy Class or other training services as necessary.
