A complete retreat for your pet

Current Classes

Wheaten Terrier jumping over a broad jobWe look forward to having you and your dog in our programs. Take a look at the schedules to find what works for you. And Please keep in mind: any situation involving multiple dogs requires some planning and health considerations:

  • Preregistration is required by phone, mail or drop-in. (Go to our locations page for phone numbers and addresses.)
  • Payment, shot records and record of a negative stool sample are due at least 24 hours before the first class begins.
  • Bordatella is recommended.

We won’t consider you fully registered unless you have paid and brought in valid records. Our classes are kept small, to encourage personal interaction between instructors and students, so we usually have a waiting list. Please contact our office with any questions (815) 547-5778.
