A good indoor training space is hard to find and harder still to keep! Please help us keep the landlord happy.

  • Please. when you exercise your dog, (let your dog urinate and defecate) please clean up.  Please have a “poop” bag with you at all times.  You may walk your dog on the grass at the far end of the parking lot but you must clean up after your dog.
  • Please keep your dog in a martingale, limited slip or greyhound style collar with current ID at all times. (For your first class any collar that buckles or snaps closed will do)
  • Only one handler may handle the dog for the complete session of classes.
  • Each handler may only handle one dog in each class (without prior instructor permission) and it must be the same dog each session of class.
  • Please keep your dog on lead (no longer than six feet when indoors) at all times, inside and outside the building.
  • Please wear well fitting, rubber soled shoes – no open backs or sandals please.
  • Handlers of dogs must be 14 years of age or older.  There are exceptions for the Kids & Dogs Workshops, Junior Showmanship Classes, and children currently participating in 4H dog clubs.  Children currently enrolled in a 4H dog club may attend performance classes including Rally Obedience, Competition Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Disc Dog and so on.  Children 10 – 14 may handle a dog in Small Dog/Puppy Agility with the instructor’s permission.
  • All family members are invited to attend as spectators. If you bring children please bring something for them to do (books, crayons etc). If you bring children under the age of 10 they must be accompanied by an adult who is not working with the dog.
  • Please respect the marked off areas and keep your dog, yourself and your guests out of those areas.
  • Please don’t bring any dogs that are not enrolled into the building.
  • Please remember that the temperature inside your car can rise to 120 degrees in 12 minutes. Please don’t leave dogs in the car.
  • Please remember to bring a towel or mat and treats to each class.
  • Please don’t let your dog go up to any other dog while in the building or on the grounds. Please respect the dogs wearing red bandanas – these dogs don’t like other dogs coming too close to them.
  • Please stay with the class – it’s important that we work together as a group. If you’re having a problem please raise your hand and someone will come over to help.
  • Please, for the sake of the other dogs in class, do not bring your dog to class if she/he has diarrhea, vomiting, runny eyes or a runny nose.
  • Please remember that working with your dog is a commitment and you will need to practice five to six days a week for the entire class schedule.
