Positive training class registration form on Sign Up page
NO FAR-OFF START DATES!
Start right away with Orientation, Week 1, at a different time and/or day than the rest of your series. Bring dog & whole family if possible for 90-minute intensive manners discussion, training exercises, tips & source for easy equipment.
Orientation 11 a.m. Mondays, 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays or 6:30 p.m. Thursdays. Mark orientation date on class registration form to reserve your spot.
PUPPYLOVE CLASS TIMES:
6:30 p.m. Mondays (free agility intro 6:15 p.m.)
1:30 p.m. Saturdays (free agility intro 1:15 p.m.)
Pick one for your primary class
When space permits you can drop in free in other Basic Manners sessions for extra help or makeup sessions during initial 10 weeks
Extra weeks added free for serious emergency situations, weather issues
Include with your registration form any additional class dates you will miss (on same line as what you choose for orientation date) to get extra weeks of class for planned trips, events etc. You also get credit for serious emergency dates later (talk to us about work, family situations or if you win a cruise, for special exceptions😁).
Of course you also get additional weeks if your instructor has to attend a dog event or continuing education (yes, even for 45-year dog trainers), or handle an emergency.
Free supervised play times for current & returning PuppyLove graduates continue with at least monthly attendance and approval of continuing social graces: 11 a.m. Thursdays, 2:30 p.m. Saturdays with maintenance of social skills
If you are an experienced trainer or have the time for extra practice & studying your materials, you can use remaining weeks at intermediate levels after 6 weeks of PuppyLove or Basic Manners (no additional cost), or can skip right to competition levels with advance approval of instructor. Dogs that have not been to Best Paw Forward Inc. PuppyLove or Basic Manners may start in advanced obedience classes with the approval of your instructor. (Manners Plus is only available to dogs with experience in our programs.)
Discounts for experienced handlers, usually with titles on current or previous dogs
