ANNOUNCING ADDITIONAL CLASSES FOR END OF 2019

Because of popular demand, a few classes will be offered following Session 4 (late fall of 2019).

  • Mondays @7pm
  • $10 per class
  • No orientation/registration required.

  • These classes are open to handler/dog teams who have gone through an 8-week Puppy or 8-week Manners class with POTC already.  This is designed to re-freshen and re-enforce skills already learned in those sessions.  It is not progressive.  This is also excellent practice for test items on the CGC.  CGC evaluations have not been scheduled at this time.
