All dogs must start with a level one obedience class. My classes are not like other classes, and cover desensitization, relaxation, and trust building as opposed to just basic obedience. 

*Vaccination records must be up to date prior to the first class
*Dogs must be on a nylon leash and collar/harness throughout the entire class
*A Nylon leash & Collar/harness is the only training equipment allowed. We do not allow e-collars, Choke Chains, Pinch Collars, starmark collars, or any other punishment and negative reinforcement based equipment, and we do not use clickers in group classes because it can be distracting to other dogs.

*Contingent on enrollment. Limited enrollment may result in class postponement until enrollment reaches as least 4 dogs. Maximum of 6 dogs per class.
