Proof of current vaccinations and pup's fecal test results are required BEFORE first class. Fecal test must indicate negative result. You may fax a copy of the Vet invoice or report with this information or have your Vetís office fax to (425) 576-1145. If pup
has tested positive for parasites a retest is required before pup can attend class. If positive results and treatment conflict with class date, you are welcome to attend without pup until fecal retest states negative result. Please fax results of retest.
I affirm my dog is VET checked, healthy and parasite/worm free. If your pet is just not feeling well, has diarrhea or is vomiting,
seek Vet attention and do not bring your pet to class. You are welcome to attend class without the pup until pup is well.
I understand that classes may not be the best training environment for my puppyís temperament or my ability to handle my puppy in a training class. If the trainer decides dog is too disruptive or aggressive for class or handler cannot control dog safely in class or on premises I may be (kindly) dismissed from class and be invited to attend without my dog. I understand there are no refunds or transfers to another class should this occur. Children 10 and older may handle dog in Puppy School II if trainer observes child can handle dog around other dogs/people and the environment safely. One parent must be in attendance at all times with that child and take over handling the puppy upon trainerís request.

Your puppy's education should begin by 7 or 8 weeks of age. Or as soon as you bring that wonderful life home. It is much easier to shape behavior and teach manners at an early age preventing problems than having to solve problem behaviors at a later date.
Training your dog is more than just teaching obedience commands.
The process should build a mutual respect, trust, lay a foundation
for communication and expose your dog to life. Along the way, your
dog's confidence must stay in tact. Even when telling the dog
"no" or "leave it." The old methods of dominating and manhandling
your dog are passe' and cruel! Respect isn't forced. It is earned.
All puppies go through certain puppy behaviors to some degree. At these classes, you will learn how to prevent, redirect, and address these normal behaviors. You will also feel you are not alone in dealing with normal puppy issues. You can look at puppy classes like group therapy! You will be with other people who forgot how time consuming raising a pup properly can be. It is nice to be with other tired puppy parents
Training should be fun. Not a chore. Both you and your dog will be
set up for success by your instructor when you attend these classes.
You will learn how to communicate more effectively with your dog
to get faster results.
Proper, supervised socialization and exposure to life needs to be included in your dog's education at an early age. Before 12 weeks of age. You and your dog will learn to understand each other and pups will get the opportunity to interact with other dogs and people. If your pup exhibits aggressive tendencies or is too rough with other pups you will be given protocol to address those issues. The safety and comfort of every person and every dog in class is priority.
Puppy School I is for pups, all breeds 10-16 weeks of age. Classes are kept small for more personalized attention. Puppy School II is for pups 4-6 months old who have graduated from Puppy School or have gone through my one on one training. Attending other group classes may qualify, but you must have permission by the instructor prior to any class to attend.
Upon registration or at first class, proof of vaccinations to date are required. We also require proof that your pup has had a fecal float test to rule out parasites within 2 weeks of any class date. To keep all the pups healthy and to maintain our squeaky clean record to date there are no exceptions to this requirement.
Group classes, no matter how small, may not be the best learning
environment for you or your puppy. For a variety of reasons. Please
do not be discouraged. Other training options will be made available to you
such as one on one training.
