Dog Training Classes

Reminder:  Some classes may miss a week due to a holiday, weather issues, or calendar conflicts for the trainer.  Occasionally a trainer may also have an emergency or something come up and need to cancel a class.  Please keep this in mind if you are training at several of the sites to make sure that there is a class.

PARENTS:  Please remember that you do need to stay someplace nearby in case of emergencies.  If you are bringing small children with you, you will need to have activities for them to do so that they do not interfere with class members who are trying to work. 

Cloverbud Members are NOT ALLOWED to handle any animals in 4H for insurance reasons.
