The latest Good Dog Rising news:
New dog? Choose your own start date for Puppy or Basic class!We offer our Puppy and Basic Manners classes in an open-enrollment format, which means you can start when you choose instead of waiting a month or more for a class to start. Choose your start week from among all available dates during registration, and complete your class over the course of the next 7 consecutive weeks (we'll let you know about holidays and occasional days off).
We are committed to small class sizes with both a lead and assistant instructor in each Puppy and Basic class. You can reserve ahead for any start week you like - just pick your start week during online enrollment. See the Services page for more details, or click on the "Sign Up Online" link below to choose your class.**Thank you for your support and referrals!** We are swamped, and there is a wait of a couple weeks for some of our five Basic Manners classes. We just added a third Puppy class so that we have immediate start dates available. Be sure to click on all of the class options, as the wait is different for each class - from immediate starts available, to several weeks' wait.
Ready to take your training to the next level? New Intermediate and Advanced classes start every other month - September and November are next! Join us for Advanced Manners, Tricks, Rally-Obedience, Intro to Freestyle, or Reactive Dog Level Two class. If you have something specific in mind, leave us a comment on FaceBook, or sign up for any of the "Notify Me About the Next...." options at the bottom of the class registration page so we can see what you're interested and let you know when we post the class. We also have our continuing Rally-O, Scentwork, and Agility for Fun classes and welcome new additions! Click on the "Sign Up Online" link at the bottom of any page to see the current class schedule.
