*Our “kids in class” policy*
We believe it is important for the whole family to be involved in your dog’s training and highly encourage children to attend classes. We require an adult present with any child under 18 and we require an adult dog handler with any child under 10. In order to maintain focus on the dog, children under 6 must be accompanied by 2 adults so that one adult can concentrate on dog handling and the other on the child handlingJ. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Refund & Cancellation Policy
Cancellation must be given 10 days in advance from the first day of class for a full refund or credit. A $20 service fee will be applied to all refunds made at any time after registration. No refunds or credits given within 10 days of the class start date or after the 1st day of class.

  1. Hi! My 3-1/2 year old mini Australian Labradoodle, Hastings, and I are interested in finding out more about nosework classes. We have taken several classes at Ahimsa, including agility, but they don’t offer nosework classes. When will you have more classes and will you be offering them in Ballard, where we live?

    1. We do not have any plans to add Nosework to the Ballard schedule. All Nosework classes are offered indoors at our Burien Training Center and there is space available in July classes currently. Our Nosework instructor Erica also teaches NW at Kokoro Dog in Woodinville.
