Please do not come to class if you are feeling unwell, coughing, sneezing or running a temperature. If you find that you've recently been exposed to someone who has tested positive or has the symptoms of COVID-19, please let your instructor know before coming to class. Respect the social distancing guidelines as explained by your instructor.

Place your training equipment on the surfaces designated by your instructor. We take this virus very seriously and are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe.
5 MPH SPEED LIMIT IS STRICTLY ENFORCED FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY
BARKING DOGS IN PARKED CARS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
Our goal is to have an easily-accessible training facility which
promotes dog-friendly dog training.
To that end, we teach people how to focus on and reward correct behavior
in ways that dogs understand. We believe strongly that
learning should be fun for all -- the dogs and the humans!
All classes are taught using positive reinforcement and a clear understanding of
how dogs learn (Operant Conditioning).
Focus is always on building a strong relationship based on leadership,
trust, and cooperation.
Class sizes are small so everyone gets lots of individual attention.
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY: If the Vancouver School District is closed, so are we.

- We find that it is often counterproductive to have two dogs from the
same household in the same beginner level class. This is also true for
two dogs that know each other very well. We recommend that you give each
dog the benefit of your full attention in class, and we find that this
helps you achieve the same back from your dog.
- We ask all owners to be aware of their dog's behavior while on
leash. All handlers are asked to not allow their dog free access to
sniff another person's dog without asking permission of the owner first.

from disease. If your dog is acting sick, please don't come to class
