Cooperation in Care

Instead of struggling with your pets teach them to willingly participate in their own care!

Due to our small class sizes enrollment is open until a class fills. It may sometimes be necessary to delay our start date. If the class you want is not currently active you can register now to reserve your spot on the roster; payment is not due until the class has an official start date.

In an effort to make everyone feel comfortable during the transition back to in-person training, we will adopt safety measures in accordance with CDC regulations.  

  1. Masks are required at all times in the studio. Please maintain a distance of at least 6 feet apart.

  2. If you arrive early for class, please remain in your car. When coming inside, please maintain a minimum of 10 feet from any other dog/person teams.

  3. Hand sanitizer will be available at the studio.

An Ounce of Prevention

Dates: Saturday, TBD at 4:15 p.m.

Class duration: 5 weeks, 1 hour per week 


Instructor: Cathy Painter, LVT, CBCC-KA


This class is for dogs that are unsure or nervous about visiting the vet, or who are easily overstimulated at the vet's office. These dogs could be experiencing anxiety and/or fear. We help you learn to read canine body language so you will know when your dog is comfortable and when the dog is just being compliant. We will help your dog learn to tolerate, even enjoy, the types of body handling associated with physical exams. They will also begin learning polite waiting room behaviors!


If your dog has a history of aggression at the vet, such as barking, growling, attempting to bite, "A Pound of Cure" is just what you need (coming soon). It is meant for dogs that already have a significant fear response to the veterinary environment.


Class size: Maximum 3 dogs


Fee:  $155


Requirement: Current vaccinations appropriate to the age of the dog.
