Class Information and Policies
Due to our busy weekend schedule of dog shows and seminars, some Saturday sessions will have skipped Saturdays. We do not have class on the first Monday of each month.

We do not give refunds for any reason. If you are interested in registering for a class, you may contact us to request a registration form, or contact the adult school if the class is being offered through the adult school. We don’t allow aggressive dogs into classes, however we may work with them privately or refer you to another qualified trainer for private lessons.

We require that all dogs and puppies attending our classes be current on vaccinations. Owners must bring proof of DHPP and Rabies to first class. Leptospirosis and Kennel Cough also required at Dublin Creek Kennel classes.

If you have questions about some of the classes, visit our dog sports and activities page that explains different dog sports.
