Advanced Classes

Students wishing to take our Advanced classes can do so after completing the Puppy or Adult foundation classes or by an instructor’s recommendation after completing a Class Placement Evaluation or a private training session. There is no set curriculum for our Advanced classes. Instead, each class is tailored to the students’ interests and needs as a group and as individuals on that day at that time. These Advanced levels are “ongoing” in that students can register for the same level as many times as they need in order to master the skills required to move up.

At All About My Dog there are always new levels to reach, skills to sharpen, and a never-ending list of fun things to learn how to do with your dog – the sky is the limit!

Get Ready For Advanced Class!

The entrance is through the side door by the red, white and blue fire hydrant. Please use our dog-friendly potty area only.

  • Keep your dog leashed and close by your side – don’t approach other dogs
  • Bring a hungry dog because we’ll be using treats in class
  • Bring healthy, soft treats (we have a great selection in our shop!)
  • Bring a 6’ leash (no retractable leashes)
  • Wear comfy clothes and athletic shoes – no high heels or boots, please!

  • Required: Provide up-to-date medical records, including a negative fecal report stating “no parasites seen,” prior to your first class. (There are no refunds or make-ups for classes forfeited due to missing fecal records.) See our medical guidelines for more info.
