At this time I am not accepting new students due to Covid 19. This may change in the spring. I do recommend that you continue to train your dog at home until such time that we can return to our normal activities. AKC & ASCA are both offering Virtual Titles (video taped at home). You can earn Tricks, Rally and Agility Titles. I have some videos of my dogs earning these titles in My Dogs- Trick Videos, ACT Videos and My Rally Store.
