Dog and Puppy Training Classes

2023 Classes are Complete - Sessions will Resume in Spring 2024

Obedience, Rally & Conformation classes generally run from four to six weeks and are held Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM. Pre-registration is required for all classes except conformation. Beginning obedience and puppy kindergarten six-week sessions are $95 and include a leash & collar. All other six-week sessions (that do not include equipment) are $75. Four-week beginning and puppy sessions with equipment are $70 and all other classes are $50 without equipment. Conformation classes are offered on a “drop in” basis, at $5 per class.

​The minimum age for handling a dog or puppy in class is 12 years, and all handlers under 16 years must have a parent or guardian present during the class.​
