Advanced Obedience

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 virus, TDTC has had to make adjustments to our Summer 2020 schedule for our Advanced Obedience classes (Novice I, Novice II, Open, Utility, Nosework and Rally). We have all missed training and look forward to seeing you soon.  Please be patient with us as we try to accommodate all of you who wish to return to classes when they resume on the week of June 22nd. 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IN ITS ENTIRETY.

  1. You must fill out a new enrollment form as the schedule has changed. The new form is attached to this email and is available on the website.
  2. Summer enrollment is for TDTC members only, unless we have additional spots available.
  3. Class size will be limited to 6 students and NO additional visitors.  NO EXCEPTIONS.
  4. Your previous enrollment money will be applied.
  5. You must give a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.
  6. If more than six students enroll in a class we will use a lottery process to fill the class.
  7. Classes will be 45 minutes in length so the instructor has time to clean the ring before the next class.
  8. Enrollment forms must be in by WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 2020.
  9. You may either mail your enrollment form, drop it in the mail slot at the club or email it to spotteddogs731@aol.com
