Training and Events Schedule

  2. Puppy and Beginners Classes include a REQUIRED introductory seminar that you must attend before your first class date.
  3. Other prerequisites are noted on the individual course registration pages.

All class dates and times are subject to change due to weather or other emergencies. Classes may be canceled if there are insufficient sign-ups.

Please review our Refund Policy before registering for classes.
