Teasers… NEW, FUN Classes Coming Soon!!!

Just a quick note… Pretty soon we will have ALL the information for our upcoming classes for April & May!!!
Just a hint… We will be offering a terrifically FUN & absolutely POSITIVE class to relax, bond, & DANCE with your dog!
Coming Tuesdays for 6 weeks, Beginning April 22nd, 2014
“Canine Freestyle” Class!
We will be learning some tricks, incorporating basic obedience & heeling all into a choreographed DANCE routine.
Even if YOU have two left feet and can’t dance, no worries! After all this will be a time to showcase your unique, one of a kind, special four-legged friend. Your dog will dazzle you & amaze you with his hidden talents just waiting to be discovered.
Check back, because in just a few more days we will have the registration info & packet ready for you to sign-up with.
AND since this is & will be a popular class, you must sign-up ASAP to make sure you get a spot because class space is very limited to give all the dance teams room to practice their moves.
I will also be letting you know who our fabulous, talented & skilled instructor will be in an upcoming blog.
