SERVING FORT SMITH, VAN BUREN, ALMA, AND NEARBY AREAS
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 50 minutes.
The orientation is mandatory.
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. If our students need to spend more than one week on a module we may cover it over more than one week.
All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult unless previous arrangements have been made.
