If you are ready to get started, you can pay for tuition
. You will receive an e-mail with instructions for scheduling the included evaluation.
After booking your evaluation, send us your dog’s health records. For pups over 12 weeks of age, we need proof of vaccination against rabies, parvo, distemper, and bordetella (kennel cough). We also need proof of a negative fecal test result. (For pups under 12 weeks of age at the time of enrollment, rabies vaccination is optional.) You can scan and e-mail these records to us, or have your vet send them to us. Our fax number is 401-330-5892 or they may e-mail them to us as well.

Once we have all of your puppy’s health records, one of us will reach out to you to reserve the next available start date for your puppy. We are generally booking start dates 2-3 weeks in advance. The best way to expedite this process is to bring your puppy to the veterinarian as soon as you bring them home, bring a stool sample to that appointment, and bring a printed copy of the health requirements to that appointment to make sure everything is taken care of. We do not hold start dates for puppies until all health requirements are met and on file with us.
When you come to your evaluation, bring your puppy and a list of goals for her behavior. Ask yourself and your family members: what do we want to be able to do with our dog when her training is complete? What behaviors do we need help with right away? Write it down (post-it notes are encouraged!) and we’ll chat about it all during the evaluation.
