What should I bring?

For classes…

  • Your dog…
    • Unless it is in season, ill or infectious.
    • Wearing a collar with identification (The law states that any dog walked in a public place must wear a collar with identification displayed on, or attached to, it. The law states that the information required on an ID disc is the name and address of the owner. Other information (i.e. telephone number) is optional.
    • On a lead.
