Group Class Registration Information and Schedule

This page is best viewed on a larger screen if possible as there is much information.

2023 - Celebrating 42 years!

RESULTS CLASSES & PAWFORMANCE SPORTS!

Hello, thank you for your interest! My small group classes are offered through Brighton Community Education (BCE), Livingston County, Michigan.
Occasional Floor Time Practice, Retrieve and Outdoor Tracking specials are offered through the instructor and advertised to Results trainers.
A wide variety of classes are available and are offered year round!

Indoor classes are held in the Hilton Elementary School gym on Hilton Rd. which is a short distance south of M-59 and just west of Old US-23, in the Woodland Lake area.
Or in the large, carpeted Miller Brighton Senior Center Kiva. The center is on Spencer Road behind the BECC building/soccer field on the hill.
Both locations are close to the I-96 and US-23 interchanges.


2023 GROUP Classes Information and Schedule

Note that we try our best to run classes as advertised, however
due to unforeseen future events at time of advertising, printing, etc. - some dates may change.

Registering Late? Be sure to bring your class payment receipt with you.
If you are not on the instructor's roster, without a receipt with the class name, date and paid, I am not allowed to have you participate. Thank you, Mary T.

Curious about attendance? See my small class size rosters at my on line newsletter, Trainer's Bark News. Click HERE and scroll down to roster lists.


Health Record Bring a copy of your pet's health record for the instructor's file at your first class - before the pets attend class #2. Pets without documentation are not allowed to participate.

Pets must have two distemper, parainfluenza and parvo vaccines, a clear fecal check and if your pet is six months or older, a rabies vaccine per MI law.

Titers documented on veterinary letterhead are accepted!

If you don't have a copier, I can borrow your record(s) at the first class and return your original at the following class.

Note: Bordetella is recommended if your pet will be boarded during classes, at a groomer salon, in public parks or at day care facilities due to the higher percentage of possible infection.
Note vaccinations are not 100% effective. If your pet displays any health concerns, please do not bring it to class and risk passing infection to other pets.
You are strongly encouraged to attend without your pet so you may teach new lessons new lessons when your pet is able.
Please do not schedule vaccination(s) on a class day. Your pet should be allowed to remain home and rest following same.

Therapy Dog Training Interest? Due to many different types of programs, bring a note to your first class stating what venue you wish to pursue (hospital, nursing home, school, library reading, etc.).
Contact the facility and include requirements the program requires. Doing so will help me to personalize your training to help you meet your goals.

There are many AKC clubs in the SE MI area that offer Canine Good Citizen testing. This test is usually a base requirment for those pursuing therapy certifications. My O&M Two and Two Plus offer practice for same.

'Fake' Documentaton: An 'on line' certification available for a fee does a huge disservice to the Therapy Dog programs. Please do not undermine the decades of work to provide people with a genuine interest in volunteering to make the world a better place for those truly in need. I will not participate or support the purchasing of 'fake' certifications which exploit the system.
