Due to time constraints, we are combining the Adolescent dogs with the adults dogs in Manners & Etiquette I.  Once we have more time slots to work with, we will split these two age groups up again. We will have a smaller dog join a puppy class if they are over 6 months of age.  This depends on the dogs social skills with other dogs.

Vaccine Requirements

Dogs over 6 months of age must have proof of vaccines showing date last given for Rabies, Bordetella, Distemper-Parvo Combo (listed as DHLP……..).

Puppies are required to have the 1st of a series of 2 Bordetella vaccine and the 2nd of a series of 3 Distemper-Parvo (listed as DHLP……) I do accept titer test results for Distemper-Parvo for dogs over 1 year of age.


Adolescent-Adult Dog I class has orientation the first night. Your dog stays home for the orientation.  This gives you the opportunity to meet us and get answers to the questions you have.  The orientation is approximately 1.5 hours.  We require that you bring your dogs vaccine record.  Credit card, cash and check are accepted at this time.  We will introduce you to our training methods plus:
