What do I need to know before attending a training class?

 

  • Be on time!

  • Bring a copy of your dog's up-to-date vaccination records (Puppies must receive their first four set of shots prior to attending a training class.)

  • Download a Registration Form and bring it filled out to your first session.

  • Payment is due at the first class. Make checks payable to On Command Dog Training.

  • Always have your dog on leash unless told otherwise. Your dog should be on a flat collar and a 6 foot regular leash.  No retractable leashes will be permitted in class.

  • Dinner time after class - Please skip at least part of your dog's meal before class. It will help immensely in class if your dog is hungry!

  • Small easy-to-chew treats - like hotdogs cut into tiny pieces, cheese, or soft breakable treats.

  • Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

  • Doggy potty break before class, you may use the grounds surrounding the facility. Please pick up after your pet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there homework between training classes?

 

Yes!  The most important thing any owner can do for their canine is by exercising and providing mental stimulization daily.  You will receive weekly homework tasks to complete daily which will help you and your dog maintain the lessons you learn in class.

05

Are make-up classes available?

 

Yes.  You may postpone a training class provided a twenty-four hour notice is given.  Make up lessons are available for no additional cost provided they occur no later than six weeks after the last class in your six-week training session.

03

What if my dog must be spayed/neutered during my 6-week training session?

 

If your dog is scheduled to be spayed/neutered at any point during your registered training session, we recommend you wait at least two weeks before returning to training.  Any missed classes can be made up at no additional charge.
