Obedience Classes Flow Chart 212x300 Obedience

Is your dog having more fun in your home than everyone else in the famliy? Is your couch shredded? Maybe his morning is complete only after he’s pulled your wife down the street a time or two. Once the front door is open, forget about it. Come when called? You’ve got to be kidding. The games have begun.

Class Policies:

Class registration closes 24 hours in advance of the class start date. You must pre-register online or by completing a class registration form in order to attend a class. Classes are subject to cancellation or date changes at the discrection of OTCPBC training staff.

Because class size is limited and sufficient time is necessary to contact alternate students, class tuition may only be refunded if notice, in writing or by email, is received seven (7) business days prior to the start date of a class by the instructor or the director. OTCPBC does not offer partial refunds, make-up lessons, private instruction in lieu of group classes, or the transfer of monies from one class to another.

Please bring proof of DHP, bordetella, and rabies (as age appropriate) the first night of class.
