classes are held on weeknights (Mondays through Thursdays after 6pm),
with a few daytime offerings. There are usually no weekend classes.
We offer three levels of basic (intro-level) obedience: Puppy, Pre-Basic, and Basic. Each class has a maximum enrollment of eight dogs. Classes meet for 45 minutes once a week for eight weeks. Basic also includes a ninth meeting for Graduation. The fee is $104 for the general public ($72 for members).
Which one should you take? It depends on the age of the dog:
Start at whichever level is appropriate for the age of your dog, then go on to the next level.
Basic is the prerequisite for everything else we offer.
