Classes

SKOC is only accepting a maximum of eight (8) participants in each class and is therefore unable to offer refunds should participants decide to withdraw after first class and spot cannot be filled.

Due to extremely long waiting lists in the past and different classes being offered in different quarterly sessions, names will not be kept on waiting lists, except for cancellation in a session.

PUPPY – For Puppies 12 weeks to under six months.  Two sets of vaccinations are required.
An introduction to basic obedience for the new puppy and owner.  The class focuses on reinforcement using praise, treats or toys in a safe socially-controlled environment.
