2019 Entry Level and Returning Group Class Information and Schedule

Welcome and thank you for your interest!

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.

Curious about attendance? See my small class size rosters at my Trainer's Bark News - on line newsletter! Click HERE and scroll down.


Before registering, please follow Steps #1 - #5:

#1 New? Read Program Information .
Here you will also FAQs at the bottom of the page, then return to this Schedule page.

#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!

Conformation - Structured Show Classes

Read the class description and prerequisites before registering, click on the above header link that interests you.

This class is shared. Welcome are recreational or show AKÇ Rally-O and serious (while having fun!) show trainers wishing to title in formal obedience (BN, CD) and conformation (championships). (Recreational adanced obedience trainers are asked to join the O&M Two Plus or Rally classes.)

The main core here is for AKC title competition. If you have an interest in showing and titling in United Kennel Club (UKC) or Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) events, advise. I can help you. Show trainers are expected to learn the rules and socialize their dogs at dog events to compliment the training received at class. There are many shows within reasonable driving distance of Livingston County. More information is available at class.

Prerequisites for AKC Beginner Novice (BN) or Rally-O: Results O&M Two or Two Plus! and instructor permission, inquire!

Prerequisites for AKC Show Obedience (CD): Results - Pawformance Sports! AKC Rally-O and instructor permission, inquire!

Prerequisites for AKC Conformation Champion (Ch): Results - Pawformance Puppy Class! and instructor permission, inquire!


Please join the first available session offered following your graduation. Past obedience participants in this class that are on break more than two sessions please attend an O&M - Level Two Plus! 'brush up' or inquire if you are a conformation trainer before returning*.

*Instructor reserves the right to transfer any pet that interferes with class flow to the remaining classes left in the current session of same location O&M Level Two Plus! class if it is currently running, see schedule above. No refunds will be given if a pet is transfered to O&M Two and is not able to attend O&M Two Plus! for any reason.
