Handling Classes

Fairview Community Center

There is no Handling Class until further notice!
Classes are opened to members at the cost of $3.00 per dog, and non-members at the cost of $5.00 per dog. We will keep the size of the class at 9 people plus the instructor. Also the large dogs and small dogs will be separated to keep the numbers down during this pandemic.

Be aware that you will be required to sign a liability waiver and present proof of your pet’s current Rabies vaccination.
