All Classes

September 2021 COVID Information: Here is some important information for you to know about:

We are requiring ALL students (and our staff) to be fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final shot) against COVID-19 to be able to come to an in-person class. Students must either email a photo of their COVID vaccination card OR show their card to a staff member BEFORE entering the building for the first class.

With the recent increase in cases in Washtenaw County and our state, while we aren't requiring the use of masks, we do encourage you to use one.

All obedience classes are held in the north end of the big building at the rear of the NDT site.

The classes are listed in the approximate sequence we recommend you follow.

If paying by check, please write the section number(s) and your dog(s)'s name on your check. This is a big help for processing registrations.
