Classes / Schedule
If your dog is coughing or not feeling well, PLEASE do not bring your dog to class. If you have not updated your vaccine record with me, please send a copy or the dates of your dogs latest vaccine.

If you are coming to the puppy class please bring a leash, favorite toys, and a blanket or mat for your puppy to lay on. Also bring a copy of your puppy’s shot record. All puppies must have at least their first DHLPP shots before coming into class.
I welcome children to classes, but they should be old enough to sit in a chair quietly and learn along with you by watching.
Please give 24 hours notice of cancellation to remove you attendance from the roster.
If you do any hiking or live near the mountains this class is a must. For every one rattlesnake you see, there are ten you don’t.
Web Parton is a master in field dog training and Rattlesnake Avoidance training. He has written many books on his training methods and trains throughout the Western states. His training is done once and will stay with your dog the rest of their life. Dogs don’t forget it. Owners are very involved in the training and Web will not let your dog leave without knowing your dog is totally trained. The class lasts about 4 hours and will take place early in the morning or later in the evening for the safety of the snakes. You will not only learn a lot about Rattlesnake detection but a lot about the snakes themselves.
It is an honor to have Web do this training for us and I hope many of you will take advantage of this opportunity while we are able to have him here.
