Group Classes at Buckeystown Veterinary Hospital

 

Classes are held at Buckeystown Veterinary Hospital (with the exception of Out and About and advanced Level Nose Work). Classes are typically 45 minutes each week and will be taught indoors and may include some outdoor exercises, weather permitting. Pre-registration and pre-payment for all classes is required.  Please email us first to find out if there is room in the class you are interested in.  

To register, you may also download this registration form and email it back to: fithound73@gmail.com and pay online via Paypal at the bottom of this page.You may also mail in the registration form with check.  Registration is not confirmed until both form and payment are received.

**Dogs must be able to tolerate being in close proximity with other dogs and people they do not know.  Dogs who are exteremely shy, fearful, or reactive (they bark, lunge or are completely unfocused in the presence of other dogs or people) are not good candidates for group class and typically require a private consultation and /or private lessons first. If your dog is fearful or having issues with reactivity, please email us and we are happy to discuss other alternatives :)
