Sat. PuppyLove & Basic Manners sessions fill up fast so jump in right now!
If the class of your choice is full when you register, you can start immediately at your orientation class, start reading your materials and then join your regular time/day series right away if there is room in the class right now, or in a few weeks as class numbers allow.
You also have the option of jumping into one of our other sessions now, then moving to your preferred spot in a week or two.
Only your actual class weeks count in your package, of course.
On your registration form, list any any class dates you will miss on the same line with your chosen orientation date to get extra weeks of class. After that you only get credit for serious emergency dates later or talk to us about work or family situations that might qualify (if you win a cruise, we will work with you! 😁).
Free drop-ins for extra help or for makeup classes when you miss a session for last-minute events are available at other weekly sessions when space permits. Private sessions for current series students are $25 per hour in Osteen.
We are happy to provide private classes for young pups as well as teenage & adult dogs, especially if that is what your schedule and needs dictate. Both our private and small group classes teach pups how to focus around distractions, to respect and like other dogs and other breeds, and are a great foundation for happy, friendly dogs in the future.
(All of our instructors & our volunteers always start their own friendly pups & dogs in our group programs. Even with our experience training dogs, it is impossible to accomplish alone with our own dogs what we can do with the socializing and training opportunities in our carefully-managed group series.)
