UPDATE:
Scroll down for future months

WE ARE OPEN FOR LIMITED CLASSES IN PHASE TWO.  

Our delayed April/May students have been contacted and we have been working hard to juggle everyone ready to begin into the June session.  If you were on a list and didn't receive an email, please check your junk mail box and contact us to reschedule.  Registrations are open for July and beyond, COVID willing. 
At this time, class size is limited by Phase 2 restrictions of no more than five people per class.  (5 dogs, one human per dog.)
We hope everyone will stay well and stay safe so we can make it to Phase 3 so hopefully whole families can attend together again.
You may register now for a future month, or just put "next available class" and the day & time you prefer.

Puppy Confidence sessions are currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 restrictions.  We are unsure when we will be able to begin.  If you have already paid for the sessions and your pup will be over 20 wks before we can begin, we will refund or apply your fees to a future class.  If you are interested, we recommend you wait to add PC to your package until we know it is a go,  when we reach Phase 3.

We are taking it slow as we figure out where we will be COVID-wise for fall. Class days and times for future months will be similar for the following months.  You can be vague as "next available daytime class in October" or "anything after 5 weekdays".
