Requirements

Your dog must be up to date with vaccinations. Written proof of current vaccination is required prior to the start of the course.  If your dog is spayed or neutered, a copy of their spay/neuter veterinary record is also required.

For your dog’s safety and well-being, females in heat are discouraged from being worked in public areas such as dog parks until their cycle is finished. Lessons will be scheduled to accommodate the cycle.

All training tools, including food treats, must be provided by you, the owner.
