2019 Entry Level and Returning Group Class Information and Schedule

Signing Up? While most classes fill early, sometimes an offering will not meet minimum in time for staff scheduling.
Please register at least one week early to avoid disappointment!
NEW - Howell Parks & Rec is closing Puppy and Obedience & Manners One early! See dates posted by each offering below.
Registering early helps to ensure that building staff can be scheduled before deadlines arise.

Remember to use the class name and class ID # if known when registering and confirm dates and times.

Registering Late? If it is late the day of offering be sure to bring your class payment receipt with you.
If you are not on the instructor's roster, without a receipt with the class name, date and paid, the instructor is not allowed to have you participate. Thank you! Mary T.

#2 Read Trainer Information Form & Rules.
If you agree with the terms, print this two page form.
Bring this completed form to your first class so I may review before your class #2.


#3 Health Record Requirements:

Pets must have two distemper, parainfluenza and parvo vaccines, a clear fecal check (ideally within' thirty days prior to class for puppies and a rabies vaccine is s/he is six months or older per MI law.
(The combo vaccine is not required to be given at once, if your vet administers separate vaccines, that is fine providing coverage is provded.)
Titers documented on veterinary letterhead are accepted!

Please bring a copy of the latest health record for your pet for my file. Note, if you don't have a copier, I can make a copy and return your original at the following class.

Other vaccines may be recommended by your veterinarian. Bordetella is recommended if your pet will be boarded, at a groomer salon, in public parks or at day care facilities due to the higher percentage of possible infection.
Note vaccinations are not 100% effective. If your pet displays any health concerns, please do not bring it to class and risk passing infection to other pets. You may attend and see the new lessons to practice at home as your pet is able.

New Pet? To help avoid possible parvo or kennel cough at class, pets that are acquired within two weeks prior to class start should not attend class until the two week incubation period is over. If this applies to you and you do not want to wait for a future session, do register and attend the second class if necessary without your pet. You can observe the lessons and practice at home, your pet will be missed, but will do alright starting at class #3 if you have practiced at home. Thank you!
