Step one? Please contact us via phone or this link to set up an initial private session with one of our trainers to see if this program is a good fit for your dog. Not all dogs are good candidates for these programs, as being away from home can cause some dogs to be fearful which can interfere substantially with learning.
Our initial fee for this private consultation is $40 for a basic (30min) session and evaluation, and $75 for an extended session (if your pup ends up needing a bit more time). We require a $20 non-refundable deposit to secure your session.
We require all dogs be up to date on the following vaccines (at age appropriate times): Distemper, Leptospirosis, Canine Influenza, Bordetella, Rabies and a clean fecal sample (done within the past 6 months) on file with your vet, as your dog may meet some of our faculty dogs during the evaluation, and we want to make sure everyone is as safe as possible.
