Levels Training and Flexi-Passes
Not every dog learns at the same rate, so we offer progressive Levels Training to meet the individual needs of each dog and owner. Work at your own pace, and graduate when you’re ready. No pressure, just learning fun! Plus, most students don’t want to wait 5-6 weeks to start training. With our classes, you can begin as soon as there’s an opening. To get started, students simply attend our Behavior and Training 101 Seminar (BAT 101), and then choose the best entry-level class for you and your dog. Typically, students start class within a week of attending BAT 101.
In addition, we offer a flexible pass system to help fit training into your life, instead of the other way around. Students purchase a 5-class flexible pass, or flexi-pass, which gives you drop-in options for missed classes, and works with your schedule. Students have 5 weeks to use 5 classes, and can purchase additional passes as needed. Individual passes for beginner classes are $125.
All foundation classes are offered on an open-enrollment basis, and students will be placed on a waiting list if classes are full. If class is cancelled due to weather, holidays or professional development for our trainers, your training pass expiration date is extended.
