Thriving with your Reactive Dog

Canine Outdoor Adventure

Group Classes

 Information and Class Rules:

- Families are welcome and encouraged to attend together. Children must be able to sit quietly when not training and not distract the   other students.

- Classes are a maximum of 7 dogs per class and a minimum of 3. This ensures that you and your dog get plenty of attention and help. 

- Payment is due when registering for the class and is NON REFUNDABLE. This is required to hold your spot in the class. Please note   there are NO REFUNDS once you have registered.

- We recommend if you are considering signing up for a class that you thoroughly review your personal schedule to ensure you will not   miss classes. It is best if you can make all the class. Missing one class is fine, but your dog will do better with the consistency of each     week. If you miss a class then you forfeit that class. We do offer make up sessions for $30 if there is time in the schedule to do so. 

- We reserve the right to ask any handler with a dog that is outwardly aggressive towards people and/or other dogs to be removed from      the class environment and one on one privates can be done instead before attempting to continue in a class structure. If you are           unsure if your dog will do well in a class, please contact us before registering and we can decide together.

- Once you have registered for a class you will receive a confirmation, please check this over to make sure your registration is accurate      with the date and time of the class you selected.

 - All dogs are required to have current vaccines for their age. Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella. (Titers are okay).

   Vaccines must be given by a veterinarian. If vaccine records are not provided then your dog will not be allowed in class. 

- If a dog has any diarrhea, vomiting, coughing or sneezing they can not come to class.
