The class fee is non-refundable, non-transferable and there are no make-up classes. Prior to registering please note the nature of offering limited space classes, the above stated policies, and that there are no exceptions. Please do not ask for an exception.

A copy of Health Department mandated proof of vaccines, which vary according to age, must be brought with you to the first class and given to the instructor to keep at the location. For dogs under 16 weeks, at least one round of vaccines is required (if your pup turns 16 weeks of age during the course, you must bring an updated proof of vaccine). For dogs 16 weeks and older, the Health Department requires a signature from the veterinarian and vaccines must include rabies, parainfluenza, adenovirus, bordetella, and distemper. If your veterinarian chooses not to give your pup one or more of these vaccines, we must have a signed letter from them stating that it is contraindicated.

If you have questions, please contact us.
