Arriving at Class
Plan to arrive at your first class 5-10 minutes early.
The door is unlocked 10 minutes before the start of class.
When you arrive, I will then have you drape your leash onto the ground and step on it as close to your dog as possible. This will enable me to check your supplies without your dog jumping on me.
Ok, that is it. If you have any questions at all be sure to give me a call @ 541-603-6868 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to meet you and your dog.
