Preschool (under 4 1/2 months), Kindergarten (under 6 months), Headstart (6 months or over)

DUE TO COVID-19, WE HAVE MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO DELAY CLASSES UNTIL RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED.

All those registered for April classes and beyond are simply delayed, not cancelled.
Email updates will be going out to keep you updated and informed. 


You will not lose your place in classes or your tuition.
You'll just begin a bit later than you planned.  Same day and time, just shifted to a later date.

We are also working to come up with 'homeschooling' lessons so folks can get started on their training right away and we will have suggestions for great ways to keep your dogs socialized during this tough time.  Stay tuned!    

We encourage you to register for future classes so you have a spot reserved and are on our email updates list. 

We anticipate a huge surge in registrations when restrictions are lifted.   

It could be as difficult as finding toilet paper at Costco to get a spot in the class you want!
