Each round of classes is 6 weeks in length, and you must attend the final class to complete the test. Choose from the following class dates. A ROUND is a set of classes that you attend all six dates to complete the class.

Each dog requires a handler, and must be up-to-date on their vaccinations (Rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella) before entering the training facility. For dogs targeted by breed specific legislation, please bring a front-clip style harness (such as an Easy-Walk) and basket style muzzle (pro tip: a black Baskerville Ultra in size 4 fits most ‘pit bull’ type dogs.) We will practice using these tools for outdoor walks, and teaching the dogs to accept wearing a muzzle.

We will practice getting the dogs used to wearing their muzzles for short periods of time during the class. We want to make wearing it as positive as possible for the dogs.
