Getting Into A Class
Important Temporary Changes to Your Plan
Tips on how to schedule a class
  • Schedule early
  • Schedule ahead
  • Keep at least 2 classes on your schedule
  • If you cannot get into a Family Dog 1 class take a Family Dog 2 class (we''ll explain why below)
  • Please be committed to the class when you make your reservation. Last minute cancellations are unfair to everyone else.

Since we are working on our safety protocols and getting our staff comfortable with the set up, we will be offering limited classes for a couple of weeks. We will expand the selection as soon as we can. You do not need to contact us to let us know that you need more classes, we are aware of the situation and are working as hard as we can to make SAFE changes.

Temporary Measures
In order to be fair to everyone and get more people into classes, we are temporarily going to:
  • limit reservations to one class a week
  • increasing the cancellation time from 12 hours to 24 hours
We apologize if this is inconvenient for you. We feel it is more fair for everyone in our boat.

We will post this on the Updates page as well. Please check the Updates page before contacting us. We are trying to keep up with a lot of changes and frequent emails and phone calls will slow down the process of opening up.

How Do I Make Changes on the Class Calendar?
The class calendar is a self-service tool for scheduling and changing your classes. Here is a link to a quick help video that will show you how to make changes on your calendar.

Will you make the changes for me?
We can make changes to your calendar for you, but we do charge 1 credit to make each change and we are out teaching and preparing and not in the office all of the time, so changes could take several days.

Online Recorded Classes Continue
Now you can attend online even if you want to stay in quarantine, if the in-person classes do not meet your scheduling needs, if you or your dog are unwell, or if you need to take care of loved ones at home.
To sign up for an online class visit our Class Calendar and look at the location to see if it is online or in-person.

What is my expiration date?
You can check on the class calendar when you sign up for a class. The date right before your name is your expiration date (YY/MM/DD).

If you feel you need more time or credits, you can take a look at the Upgrade option. Upgrading gives you 8 more months and 16 more credits while making your per class price very affordable. Dogs benefit from consistent training in structured settings for their first two or three years.

Client Portal for Handouts
You can go to the Client Portal anytime. It's on the menu on our website and here is a handy link for Family Dog 1 handouts for you.
The password for the Family Dog 1 Portal is iLoveMyDog23
