Contact us before your class or let us know when you attend if you are unable to register online so we can take your payment at class and still give you discounts. One coupon per new-student advance payment so pick the best deal that applies to your dog.

Square is not yet able to process discount codes when you register online, so this is our own fix: For now, these codes are the product names listed there. This makes it essential that you  complete & send back your registration forms so we can figure out where to hold your spot in class!
