COVID - HERE WE GO AGAIN.  

Under the current COVID restrictions, we are closed for in-person classes for December and we hope to resume in-person classes in January, COVID-willing.  We're keeping our fingers crossed and our masks on!
 

 December in-person classes have been pushed to January.  If you have pre-registered for January, you may be pushed to February.  You will be notified by email when we know for sure.  (Make sure our email address is on your safe list!)  Thank you for your patience as we scramble to make training possible for you and your dogs.  Private lessons are also available if you need help now.  

All registrations that have come in as of November 15 are temporarily on hold.     

It's a bit of a horizontal game of Tetris getting everyone shifted.  Of course, our puppies are growing and training is needed now!  Our staff are working hard to come up with ways to meet your needs.  Zoom classes are currently in session and we  plan to offer them again in January if restrictions aren't lifted.  If you are looking at registering to snag a future spot in class, you may send in online registration to get your place in line.  We will confirm your spot as soon as we get the current classes sorted out and will fill openings in the order the  registrations came in.  If you've registered the 15th or later, but haven't heard back yet, you are at the top of the queue!  You will not lose your place in line or your tuition.  If you are interested in a January Zoom remote classes, let us know.
