When Do Classes Start?
Classes start the first Wednesday of each month. Registration opens on the first day of classes and is open for a week. Registration closes Wed night 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time.

Please create a profile with a brief description of you and your dog.
How do I Register?
New students can create an account by signing up for the monthly newsletter or by clicking on a class when registration is open. For course schedule dates, check "Upcoming Classes" on the right side of this page or at the bottom (for hand-held devices).
How Long are the Classes?
The instructor is available Monday to Friday (9am-5pm Pacific Time) for 3 weeks for each class you have signed up for, starting the first Wednesday of the month. There are about 4 weeks of material in each class but how long it takes will vary depending on the previous training experience and age of your dog. You can still ask questions when an instructor is not teaching but there may be a delay in answering. It is important that our instructors have down-time so they do not get burned out.
How Long do I have Access to the Class Materials?
You have access to class materials 24/7 for 2 years starting from the date of purchase.
Are ALL Classes Offered Each Month?
No. Check the "Up Coming Classes" (right-hand side of this page or att he bottom for hand-held devices) for a list of the classes offered each month.
When the registration period is open, the offered classes for that month in the Class Catalogue will have a registration box below the class that looks like this: This box disappears when registration is closed. Click on "Sign up" to start the process.
How do I Pay for a Class?
Payment is made through PayPal; note that you can use a credit card to pay for classes and do not have to have a PayPal account to use it. (Under "Choose a way to pay" at the bottom, click on "Pay by Debit or Credit") You are not charged anything for using PayPal. You will receive an email receipt from PayPal that confirms your payment. It can take up to an hour for Paypal to process it. If you are paying with someone else's account please make sure to check their email for the PayPal receipt as we are given their name and information and not yours. If your Paypal name is different than your Facebook name (using your company name for example), please let us know when you request membership for any Facebook groups. We have no way to know that your name is associated with your company name.
Canadians can also pay from their bank account by Interac. Use this email and specify which classes you want to sign up for. You will also need to create an account by signing up for our monthly newsletter. You can also wire SDTI the funds but you will be charged at your end by your bank.
Can I get a Refund?
There are no refunds for self-study courses or Skype sessions. You will have access to the class materials from the time you purchase them and can start training right away.
A minimum of 24-hour notice is required to reschedule Skype consults.
