How many dogs?
We cap class sizes at 5 dogs per semester so that your dog gets great attention.
How many humans?
Due to space constraints, only two handlers per dog may attend class. We welcome handlers age 9 and up, so long as they are attentive and want to learn!
All puppies should have the maximum number of vaccinations for their age, at least one C3 vaccination.
Due to the many topics that are covered in each class, we strongly advise you to make the best effort to attend each class. We may be able to offer make-up sessions as a last resort.
Below are some photos of past puppy school graduates.
