“We would like to thank you all so much for the session that we had with Lucy. Your clear understanding of dogs and people has helped immensely. Lucy has responded to the focus exercises and we have had successful walks where I could actually stop and talk to someone. She is getting her exercise and she too seems like a happier dog.” ~ Hazelle and John & Lucy
“Fiona was given a great start with all the behaviors covered, and the instructor also did an incredible job with us, as owners, to understand how to support and reinforce what we would like to see with Fiona. She was incredibly knowledgeable, observant, and kind-hearted, and has a true gift for what she does.” ~ Michael and Fiona
“Brady is highly energetic and will probably need agility training and to learn other doggie games in the future. I look forward to some of the other classes as well as the manners classes (which he really needs and benefits from). Thank you for all you do.” ~ Mary & Brady
“I was thrilled with the class and found the training of the owners to be extremely helpful.” ~ Joanna & Sampson
“First, let me tell you how much we have enjoyed our classes with Melissa! I have taken two with her, and although I have been training dogs for eight years now, she always makes her classes fun and interesting, and comes up with something brand new for us to try. She is wonderful and I have already signed up for her Control Unleashed class.” ~ Donna & Henry
To secure a spot in our classes, you must pay for the class in full and complete a registration form. Once we have received your information and payment, we will send you a confirmation.
We require any dog attending class to be free from contagious disease and parasites, up to date on their rabies vaccine and current on all other vaccines per their veterinarian’s recommendation.
All family members are welcome in class, however, children under the age of 7 must be supervised by another adult.
Refund Policy: All classes are on a first come/first served basis. If the class you were interested in has filled, you will be contacted about alternate class availability. If you find you are unable to take a class after registering for it, you must notify the office 10 days prior to the start of the class. Notification after 10 days will result in you forfeiting 50% of your registration fee. We are unable to refund tuition once class has started. Sorry, no exceptions! Your support of the training programs helps the thousands of animals we care for each year.
