How do the Manners & Life Skills passes work?

When you purchase a pass, you may bring your dog to our open enrollment class for the level you have chosen 6 times. You have 8 weeks to use your passes from the date of purchase. Due to Covid 19 we are capping our classes at 5 dogs. If you purchase a pass and the class is currently full you will be put on a waitlist. You will be able to come to class when someone graduates or we will add an additional class time when we have at least 2 dogs able to attend the additional session.

Do I just drop in or do I have to sign up for the dates I will bring my dog to class?

You do have to sign up for the dates you will come to class. After purchasing your pass you will receive an email with a link to schedule which dates you will attend.
