Pre-Class Instructions

Bring the following for all training classes:

  • To first class only: Vet Record showing your dog is current on Rabies, Bordetella, and DHLPP vaccines.  It is very important that you bring this to class.  If you forget, we will have to send you and your dog home.
  • Regular nylon leash (NOT a retractable leash)
  • Soft, nylon dog collar (It should fit snugly around your dog’s neck.  You should be able to fit one or two fingers under the collar, but no more).
  • Irresistible dog treats to use for training rewards.
  • Your dog.  Feed your dog before class, but feed a little lighter than normal.  The extra hunger will help motivate him for the training.
  • Poo bags.  Please pick up after your dog; trash cans are available

For Intermediate and Advanced classes, bring the above items plus the following:

  • Warm coat & hat for you
  • Coat for your dog (optional)
  • Standard, nylon long line (available at Petsmart or Petco)
  • Sunglasses, two hats, and an umbrella (for our distraction classes).  If you have questions, we will describe these items in more detail at the first class.

Other Important  Information:

  • Children over age 12 are welcome and must be accompanied by an adult. Involving your children in the dog’s training is a good idea, but make sure the adult trains the dog first, then instructs the child on how to lead the dog.  This reduces the chance the dog will get confused.
  • The dog’s bathroom area is in the gravel by the side of the training room
  • The human’s restroom is in the small building opposite the training room
  • If you forget the class hours, please check our website or email/call us.
  • Our classes will be held, rain or shine.  If the class is cancelled for any reason, we’ll call or email you.
  • You may print these directions by clicking the Print PDF button at the bottom.  This will eliminate the purple background and make your print out much easier to read.
