Course Overview

The course is split up into three quarters, each being 16 hours of class time. Each quarter is $800, so the course total is $2,400. The $800 cost will be due at the beginning of each quarter, which will run from October-December, January-March and April-June. Classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, plus possibly a couple Saturdays. We will need a $200 deposit by September 15th. In addition to the three sessions, you will need to audit a series of my group obedience class. We generally hold these on Monday or Wednesday evenings from 7:15-8:15pm and they run for 6 weeks.

I have posted a sample class agenda at I will be making some update to this, but it give you the basic idea of what to expect. Thank you all for your interest. I am very excited to get this class started.
