SERVING NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, THE RIVER VALLEY, AND NEARBY OKLAHOMA

Our group classes are open to dogs and puppies who have received their vaccinations as prescribed by a licensed veterinarian. Our class size is small, so you will receive individual attention from your instructor.  Classes are between 45 minutes and an hour.


In order to enroll in our classes you must attend a mandatory orientation.


Any dog with a history of aggression or reactivity must be evaluated prior to enrolling in our group classes.


Our classes are taught in modules that build on one another.  You may attend any module you wish at any time, as long as the prerequisite skills have been demonstrated to your instructor and you have attended the required orientation. You may repeat the same module if you get stuck, or move on if you are more advanced.


All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult unless previous arrangements have been made.
