Joining a Class is Easy!

The upcoming 2017 Schedule is below. The following group classes require advance registration.

Want to join a class? To hold a spot, register and pay with Brighton Community Education (BCE) OR with Howell Parks & Recreation Authority (HP&R) depending on location.
Note that while all try to maintain class schedules as advertised, class date(s) may be subject to change.
Offerings may require minimums and have maximums, do register and pay early to avoid disappointment.
Offices are closed on some holidays and school breaks. On line registration is usually available during those times.

Pending sessions: Please do not call or try to register if "Pending" is noted.

Refunds: There are no refunds unless a class is cancelled by BCE or HP&RA, so to help ensure a good class fit...


Before registering, please follow Steps #1 - #4:

#1 New? Read Program Information which includes links to entry level and advanced class descriptions, then return to this Schedule page.


#2 Read Trainer Information Form & Rules.
If you agree with the terms, print this two page form to bring to your first class.

Do not take your Trainer Information Form and health record copies for my file to the BCE or HRC office.
Please bring them to the first class (no pets) so I may review them before your pet attends class #2.
Thank you, Mary T.


#3 Health Record Requirements:

Pets must have two distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza and parvo (DHPP) vaccines, a clear fecal check ideally dated within thirty days prior to class and a rabies vaccine if s/he is six months or older per MI law.
Titers documented on veterinary letterhead are accepted!
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!


#4 Read the Schedule - Scroll down to find your class and check your calendar.
Match the paw color of the class schedules below to make it easy to find your class:

New? Note six week Puppy or Obedience & Manners Level One classes are entry level.
Check your calendar. If you must miss more than one Obedience & Manners - Level One class, but an adult household member can attend class(es) as an observer guest of yours and fill in for you - sign up!
If you must miss more than two classes and do not have someone to fill in per above, for best Results, please wait for the next session or consider repeating the class for more instruction and practice.
