Registration for the SCOC basic obedience class at our training
building is offered every other month. The fee for the six week
class is $125.00 and is payable, by check or cash, at registration.
You will also need to bring proof of vaccination to registration
but please, leave your dog at home. The classes are held at
our training building at 3785 Given Ave. A copy of a map to
our building can be downloaded using the link on the left side
of this page.
For your class, please have a 6 foot leash (no chains or retractable
leashes, please) and a well fitted collar. We will be glad to
check your collar and make recommendations so it fits properly.
It is also a good idea to bring plenty of small, quick-to-eat
treats and/or a favorite toy to class to make learning lots
have a grassy area so you can potty your dog before class. Your
instructor will go over the training and building guidelines
at registration and again, on the first night of class.
