Class Schedules

Beginning & Advanced Companion dates are the starting date of a 7 week series. If you choose a Monday class, you will come every Monday for 7 weeks. Other classes may be single date sessions or shorter than 7 weeks. I try to post any dates that may have cancellations ahead of time, but occasionally, cancellations do occur. Classes will be extended to cover any dates missed due to cancellations on my part.

Puppy & Companion Classes

Classes are now held in the Smart Paws Academy training building in Oregon City. The building is enclosed, but not heated. Please dress appropriately for the weather. The surface is a dirt floor.

The Canine Body Language & Communication lecture information will be sent to clients with their paid registration on DVD or VHS. Clients may keep the DVD.

PLEASE WATCH THE DVD PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST CLASS!

Let me know immediately if there is a problem with the DVD. Please call if you have any questions regarding the equipment, information or techniques shown in the DVD.

The first week of the series will now be a working class with your dog. Proof of vaccinations may be sent prior to or brought to the first class. No dogs will be permitted in class without this proof.   Please see Registration Information   regarding changes to the classes.
