Frequently Asked Questions
Of course! Everyone who regularly interacts with the dog should come to class and the whole family is invited. We just ask that only one person works with the dog at a time and that children are occupied and well behaved as to not disturb the rest of the class.
Your dog, a few different kinds of small and soft treats, a flat collar or whatever equipment you are currently using, a standard 4-6ft leash (NO FLEXI-LEASHES), a toy your dog loves, and yourself! Anything else that may be needed in addition to this list will be discussed in the individual classes.
Please call or email to let the instructor know ahead of time if possible.
Of course! We are fully open and available for people to see if our classes are a good fit for you and your dog. We just ask that you please make an appointment with us in advance and you leave your dog at home.
There is no play time or on leash greetings allowed in classes for adult dogs. Not all dogs enjoy interacting with others up close and we want to utilize our time in a manner that benefits your goal of having a well-trained dog. We want the dogs to understand that class time equals “ignore distractions and work with my owner” time.
