  • 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.

  • 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.
