Welcome and thank you for your interest!
Group classes are held in Brighton or Howell, MI. Before registering, please follow steps #1 thorugh #5 to help ensure you register for the correct class.
If you have questions after reading the information here, please inquire!

Curious about attendance? See class rosters at my Trainer's Bark Newsletter - Click HERE and scroll down.

Refunds: There are no refunds unless a class is cancelled by BCE or HP&RA.


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, 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!
