This 8 week class will teach you:

The first class will be without your dogs. This will give us the opportunity to answer any questions you have, discuss things you can implement at home to set your dog up for success, and start some training games to prepare you both for class the following week.
The same person must attend class with your dog every week. An additional person over 12 years old may attend with you.
This class will have an outdoor component- as many classes as possible will take place outside of the Ruffin' It facility, pending reasonable weather conditions.
