How much does the class cost?

The cost of this class is $100.00 for cash or check. If you prefer to pay with debit, credit or PayPal, the price is $110, please let us know ahead of time so we can invoice you and you can pay prior to class. 

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free?

We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite. But, not their fee collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.

Embrace who they are and get them off to a bright start.

We are proud to be teaching the best puppy class in the area… The class is fun and entertaining and we are able to incorporate whatever we need to customize for each and every group. Handlers learn how to manage their puppy’s arousal and the end of each class is an open question time where staff sits down with each and every owner to see how progress is proceeding with each family and their puppy.

Things to Bring:

  • Your dog’s vaccine records.
  • The signed liability form.
  • A large volume of tiny, high value treats.
  • The registration form (unless you filled it out online)
  • A sense of humor


No one class builds on the skills of the previous class so puppies can be enrolled as soon as they are ten (10) weeks of age and have two rounds of vaccine.
