As with all courses, dogs are to be dropped off at the training facility (or picked up, if within a reasonable distance) and will be required to come with collars, leashes and food for the duration.
Remember, dogs are not machines. They need constant up keep. This requires a lifetime of dedication on the part of the owner / handler. In return, what they can give back can mean everything!
Dog parents must forward (via email or snail mail) the dog'(s) up to date shot records and initial payment to the facility prior to their arrival.
