SHOT REQUIREMENTS:
In order to come to the training center, your dog needs to have
received 2 DHPP vaccines, not counting anything given before 7.5
weeks. If you adopt/purchase a dog over 1 year, and they have
only received 1 shot since you got them that is acceptable. If
they are younger than 1 year, the minimum of 2 DHPP is required.

If they come to you from elsewhere - you must wait 7days
before coming to the Training Center with your dog. Wait at
least 3-4 days after a vaccine before coming to the Center. In
some cases it is appropriate to come to the first class meeting
without your dog,

PLEASE NO SHOTS SAME DAY OF CLASSES.

In-home visits are available for you and your pup.
