We also offer classes in agility, conformation and Good Citizenship Certification preparation. Classes are held in our 4000 square foot, heated / air conditioned training facility, complete with a UV air purification system and padded flooring.  We also have a large outdoor training area.  All classes are taught by highly qualified instructors who love, honor and respect the bond between people and their pets.  Please bring proof of vaccinations to the first class.  All dogs must be current on distemper/parvo, rabies and bordetella at least 7 days prior to arrival.  Self-administered vaccinations are not accepted.  All vaccinations must be administered by a licensed veterinarian.  Puppies must be completely through their puppy series of vaccinations (distemper/parvo and bordetella).
