Advanced Classes

Students wishing to take our Advanced classes can do so after completing the Puppy or Adult foundation classes or by an instructor’s recommendation after completing a private training session. There is no set curriculum for our Advanced classes. Instead, each class is tailored to the students’ interests and needs as a group and as individuals on that day at that time. These Advanced levels are “ongoing” in that students can register for the same level as many times as they need in order to master the skills required to move up.

At All About My Dog there are always new levels to reach, skills to sharpen, and a never-ending list of fun things to learn how to do with your dog – the sky is the limit!

Prepare for your Advanced Class!

Important Requirement: Up-to-date medical records, including a negative fecal report dated within one year that states “no parasites seen,” must be submitted to us at least 72 hours prior to your first visit. See our Medical Requirements page to upload records and learn more. (There are no refunds or make-ups for classes forfeited due to missing or late fecal records.)

Upon Arriving at the Dog Center…
  • The entrance for arriving students is through the side door by the pea stones and red, white & blue fire hydrant.
  • Use our dog-friendly potty area if needed.
  • Wait by the side door until your trainer opens the door and invites you in. Do not enter through the front door.
  • Keep your dog leashed and close by your side at all times. Don’t approach other dogs.
What to Bring…
  • A 6-foot leash. (No retractable leashes. Anybody with a retractable leash will be asked to buy a standard one.)
  • A hungry dog! We’ll be using treats in class.
  • Healthy, soft treats. If you forget them, we have a great selection in our shop!
  • A treat pouch and/or pockets for your training items.
  • Poop bags. It’s a good habit to always have them with you.
  • Comfy clothes and athletic shoes – no high heels or boots, please!
  • An open and inquisitive mind. You’re likely to learn new information, and we want to make sure all of your questions are answered.
