BE A TREE – call or email to schedule at your child’s school, troop or group!

Please include your email address in your registration so we can send you confirmation and instructions prior to class.

*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 $15 service charge will be applied to all refunds. No refunds or credits given within 10 days of or after the 1st day of class.
