Important Things To Know Before Enrolling
For your pup’s health and the health of all pups in our training classes, it is important that every pup is healthy and up-to-date on all core vaccinations when attending classes. You will be asked not to attend class if your pup is not up to date on Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines or if your pup is feeling under the weather. If you miss a class, you will receive an email with the information covered during that week’s class. We will do our best to accommodate in the event you miss class, however, it is your responsibility upon registering to attend the class dates listed. Our trainers reserve the right to excuse any dog/handler team from class and will follow up with more appropriate recommendations. Registration fees are non-refundable.
Private Lessons – $125 per hour for the initial lesson, follow up lessons within 6 months are $110 per hour.
Private lessons are an excellent option for pups and pawrents looking for some individual attention. Private lessons are the ideal solution for busy pawrents who may have scheduling conflicts with classes offered, for pups that are not quite ready for a group setting, or for pups and pawrents with specific needs that may not be addressed in a group setting. These sessions are tailored to meet your specific needs and goals. Pawrents and trainers will work together to determine the number of sessions recommended for maximum benefit for you and your pup.
We are now enrolling for 2021 sessions! To enroll in any of our training programs, please contact our Guest Services department at (952) 333-7529. We look forward to assisting you!
