Wednesday Night Therapy Dog Training Class
April 13 @ 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm
This class is designed to help with the training required to pass the Therapy Dog evaluation to become certified with Love on a Leash, so you can do therapy dog visits at approved locations.
Here are the details of the class:

Dates: March 23, 30, April 6, 13 Testing will take place on April 20th

Location: Meeting today at 4:30pm at the corner of Milpas and Cabrillo near the baseball field.
Approved equipment for classes and testing: flat-buckle collar, martingale collar, a body harness (except the Sporn no-jump harness), head-collar.
Prong/Pinch Collars and E-collars are not allowed to be worn or used in class or for the testing.
Bring with you to class each week:
- Your dog on an approved collar or harness, a 4-foot leash
- A bed, mat or towel for your dog to lie on when not working
- Soft meaty treats to use in training that your dog loves, a couple different kinds
I have a class before yours on Wednesdays that runs until a little after 7:00pm, no need to arrive any earlier than about 5 minutes before class, parking will be easier that way as well.
** Please note that this class will be held on the second floor of a building and will require walking up and down a flight of stairs every week. **
