Disclaimer

In our dog obedience classes, we strive to create a positive and productive learning environment for all participants. However, we understand that some dogs may require additional attention or have behavior issues that can be challenging in a group setting. If you find that you are unable to effectively control your dog or if your dog’s behavior becomes too disruptive, we may recommend considering private lessons to address these issues more comprehensively before rejoining the group class. Our priority is to ensure the safety and success of all participants, both human and canine, and we are committed to providing the necessary support and resources to help you and your dog succeed in your training journey.
