Now is the time that we are planning and setting up the classes for the fall quarter.  We would love to hear your ideas of classes you would like to see offered.  If you would like to be an instructor for a class, please volunteer.  Think about what you have a passion for and offer to share it with others!  It will bring you and others great joy!

Here are a few of the current classes being offered:

  • Basic Dog Obedience – We are now taking registrations for the June Dog Obedience classes.  In this eight-week class held on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, you will be instructed on how to train your dog to be a better companion.  Points covered include; walk on a loose lead, sit on command, lie down, come when called, stay on command, and become better socialized.  This class will start on June 28th or 29th and continue through August 16th or 17th, 6 – 7 p.m.  The class is held at K9 Coach Training on East 4th Street.  Your dog must be at least four months old.  Tuition is $75.    KEY Word: Dog
