Joining a Class is Easy!

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

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 require minimums and have maximums, do register and pay early to avoid disappointment.

Both offices are closed on some holidays and school breaks. On line registration is usually available during those times.

Pending sessions: Classes will be advertised as 'Pending' for planning purposes.
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 - #6:

#1 Read Program Information then return to this Schedule page.

Click on the color coded paw class description link(s) below and return to this Schedule page.

#3 Read Trainer Information Form & Rules.
If you agree with the terms, print this two page form to bring to your first class.
When done, return to this Schedule page to go on to #4.


#4 Health Record Requirements:

Pets must have two DHLPP 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.
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.

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!

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.
