What to Bring to Class

  What you will need to bring to class:

  • Bring proof of rabies vaccinations for dogs 16 weeks and older.  Puppies under 16 weeks must have had their first set of puppy shots for at least 1 week before attending a class.
  • DO NOT bring your dog the night night of class (Basic Manners only).  This does not apply to Puppy Kindergarten.  Puppies in Puppy K and Puppy Advanced DO come the first night of class.
  • A 6ft. nylon or leather leash.  No retractable leashes, please.  Harnesses are also acceptable for class.
  • Flat or buckle collar (choke, pinch, or prong collars are not permitted in class).
  • A baggie full of tasty, soft treats. Cooked, cut up hot dogs, soft jerky-style treats, cheese cubes or leftover chicken make great rewards! (Hard biscuit-like treats are not favorable for class because they take too long to chew up )
  • Wear comfortable clothing including sneakers as we will sometimes be working outside and/or on the ground. Please dress according to the weather.
  • Children over 6 years old are welcome in class as long as they remain supervised and do not distract the class flow.
  • Children 12 yrs and older will be allowed to handle their dog in class as long as a parent or guardian attends class with them.
  • You will most likely have better results if you do not feed your dog before each class.
  • Giving your dog exercise and bathroom time before bringing them to each class is also helpful.
  • Please try and potty your dog before entering the building for class.  Please note that all the farm fencing is electric and should be avoided.
