Here at The DogSmith we recognize the importance of having a well behaved dog and making your pets part of the family. But we also understand how busy our clients are so we designed the DogSmith “Drop-In” Class just for you. “Drop-In” enrollment allows you to register and pay for a course while allowing you the flexibility to complete the classes over a 5 month period by attending any of a number of scheduled “drop-in” sessions that fit into your schedule. You will be given a “drop-in” class card that describes the necessary skills required for the course you have enrolled in and provides a record of competency level achieved for each skill. (Courses denoted by (*) are eligible for “Drop-In” enrollment.
