Dog Training FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring to class?

A variety of treats, some toys, a 6 ft leash, and anything else your instructor specifically recommends. We do not recommend the use of prong or choke collars; we do not ban them, but do not allow a dog to wear them while working in a sport class. We do sell our preferred harness called the Freedom No-Pull Harness. You can ask your instructor for more information.

What happens if I miss class?

Unfortunately all of our class sessions are individualized, thus we cannot provide make-up classes. If you miss a class, you can email your instructor to get homework to work on until your next class.
