Level Three: Advanced - 4 wks / $95  - Discount packages available!
 

Once you've completed a Prep class, you may register for one of many fun Advanced level classes in the right column!  From another school?  If you and your dog are clicker savvy, you may start in Advanced, if not, you should begin in the Intermediate Prep class.  Choose by topic. These classes often fill quickly, so register early!  Take advantage of our discount packages.
