Certified Professional Dog Trainer

     - Knowledge & Skills Assessed


We limit our enrollment to 10 puppies (with two trainers) for each class.  This ensures that the participants receive appropriate attention and help from the trainers.  

Your registration fee guarantees you a spot in class for six weeks.  If you miss one of those weeks, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to make up the missed class.  That decision is made based on enrollment.  If there is an available spot after your six weeks, you are more than welcome to make up the missed class the week following your original graduation date.  But if our enrollment is full, that will not be possible.  We will be able to tell you if you can make up a missed class on your last scheduled night.  

This policy is needed to provide the best training experience for our clients while also addressing the needs of our business.

Each week we focus on different training topics, rotating through the six week class.  This makes it possible for you and your pup to start right away, rather than waiting for a set start date.

Handler/pup teams come to us with individual needs and experiences.  This would be no different even if everyone in a class starts on the same day.  We will build upon your skills, no matter how much or how little your pup already knows.

​Enrollment is limited to 10 puppies.  Please see Head Start Registration to verify openings.
