What do you need for classes?

General Stuff
  • Vaccinations as outlined in our class policies.
  • A lot of small, yummy treats to reward your dog with. Treats should be about the size of a pea, and delicious enough to keep your dog interested.
  • A hungry dog! Don’t feed your dog before the class so they’ll be eager to work for the treats you have.
  • Other items listed in our class policies.

Tech Stuff (online classes only)
  • A smart phone (and tripod/stand if you want one), laptop with a built-in camera, or computer with a webcam and microphone. If you prefer not to be on camera and/or to talk, the camera and microphone are optional, and you can simply watch the class and work with your dog privately.
  • A reliable internet connection. Make sure to turn off your smart phone’s data if you have wifi access at home!
  • We use Zoom for our online classes. Zoom is free and can be used without an account, and may prompt you to make a quick, easy download before the class starts.
