(anytime 0f year) is in the immediate area of the
Academy - we will cancel classes and add a week on
so you don't miss any of the information. We believe
everyone's safety should come first. If there is bad
Weather, your instructor will try to call you - we will
post a note on this web site, our yahoo groups (which
everyone can join), on Facebook and try to send you
an email if we have it. Or - just call your instructor
if you aren't sure.
These are descriptions of some of our core

and jumping. At the end of the class, the puppies will take their AKC STAR
