Finally, please complete the Supplemental Questionnaire below.

These pages will provide us general information about your dog, his personality, his health information, and ways to contact you while your dog is in the program. The additional questionnaire will provide us additional information so that our training is consistent with any training you may have already done with your dog, and also help us provide the most comfortable, stress-free introduction to our program as possible for your dog.

Once you have created your customer page and returned your supplemental questionnaire, you will be provided the link to pay for the training program. The instructor who will be working with your dog will also contact you to schedule the temperament testing/orientation session.
