When Do Classes Start?

Due to COVD -19, for your convenience, we have kept the registration open until further notice.

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.   

Access to classes is automatic after payment has been received. You have 24/7 access.
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 (on computer) or at the bottom (for hand-held devices).  

How Long are the Classes?  
There are about 4 weeks of material in each single level class but how long it takes will vary depending on the previous training experience, age and learning ability of your dog. You can ask questions during your weekly or bi-weekly private or group webcam sessions, if you choose that option. 

How Long do I have Access to the Class Materials?    
You have access to class materials 24/7 for 1 year starting from the date of purchase.  

How Do I Find Out When My Classes Expire? 
No. Check the "When Do My Classes Expire?" link under the "My Courses" listing to find out when your class expires.

What Does a Webinar look like? 
When you sign up for a webinar, the first time it is run it will be live. You have a chance to participate. If you can't attend the live webinar, it will be recorded. You will have a week to write  questions at the bottom of the webinar page. The instructor will answer those questions in a recorded question/answer session and that will be posted in the webinar class. Each time it is run after that, you will receive all materials and information the students received the first time it ran but you will not be able to ask questions. 

Are ALL Classes and Webinars Offered Each Month?  
No.  Check the "Up Coming Classes" (right-hand side of this page or at the 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.
