Events Schedule

There will not be a class on May 29 due to the Memorial Day Holiday. Testing week will now be on June 5th at the normal class times.

New Classes in Wyoming Start on June 19

We are finishing up our current classes, and will start a new series on June 19th at Ascension & Holy Trinity Church in Wyoming. We need to follow the CDC guidelines in order to use the space. Therefore, class/attendee size is very limited. We are having 2 classes every Saturday morning. The first class starts at 8:30 am and will be held outside. Class size is limited to 10 people. The second class will be inside and is limited to 8 people. This means one trainer with their dog - we can't allow attendees to bring guests at this time, except for the outdoor class. It also means that we can't invite current members to stop in for networking or a refresher.

Steve has set up a registration for the two classes in Sign Up Genius. These links must be used in order to reserve a space. Registering for the first class will also register attendees for the entire 8 week session. There is a link to our registration form and other rules provided by the church. Payment must be made at the first class. Please share the links and other information with anyone you know that might be interested. 

If possible, please print the Membership Form which can be found at the bottom of the Training, Policies, Forms & FAQs tab on the website and bring it to the first class.

Please contact Steve Bader with any questions (Contact Information).
