Our Trainers

Jan not only trains for obedience, but teaches manners and good dog citizenship. She believes that a dog that has a job and purpose is a happy and fulfilled dog. Training some types of Service and Emotional support dogs as well as preparing dogs for Therapy work is another type of training that she is involved in.

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.

Many options to meet your needs

Scheduled Classes are taught inside and outside, depending on the weather and class sizes are limited. Once you pay your fee you are more than welcome to come as many times a week as you would like, excluding private classes, semi private classes and competition classes.

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.
