classes to be held at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile!

We're excited to meet you!  Here are a few things you need to know: 

Helpful tip:
If your dog is nervous or reactive around other dogs or people, a great way to alert others to his need for space is to tie a yellow ribbon to his leash as a reminder that he needs an extra margin of space in order to feel safe.  Please help keep all dogs from invading the space of others, but be mindful that those with decorated leashes need extra space.

Please contact us if you have any concerns about your dog's behavior around other dogs or people.  We also have instructors who do private lessons if needed!

If you'd like to stop by and drop off your tuition to our North Side location (3400 N. Monroe), please do!   There is a mail slot to the left of the red door on the front porch of the training studio.  Even if we are there, we will likely be teaching a class or conducting a private consult.  If we aren't there or don't answer, please use the mail slot.  Push it all the way through and it will fall safely inside the studio.


Please write your contact info on  the outside of the envelope: including  the name of the class, day/date & time, especially if you are leaving cash! 


We are unable to take credit cards at the training studio.  You may pay via credit card online via PayPal.
