Ongoing Group Class List (Punch Card)

At this time, I am only offering one group class. All other teaching is done in private lessons. This will likely change with the cooler weather coming and when we know more about these covid variants.

Sundays, 10am Jumping:   A super popular handling class appropriate for both novice handlers, experienced handlers and every handler in between! Your dog need not be jumping full height but you and your dog need to be able to sequence 4-6 jumps before you are eligible for this class. We will be working on short jump sequences appropriate to the skill level and age of each dog/handler team. This is a great opportunity to work on your skills and also meet other Creeksiders from different class levels. This class is known to be super fun for everyone with a great spirit of camaraderie.

Experienced Dogs: If you are not already training here at Creekside and your and your dog are not known to me, you must bring your dog for a half hour evaluation prior to joining any class. Fill out the registration form and sign up online here: http://creeksidecanines.com/foundation.html

Private Lessons:

Students tend to benefit the most and progress more quickly from private or semi private time. This way we can gear the instruction to your specific needs. Privates are $62 per hour (discounted to $60 for cash or check) for 1-2 students. Half hour is $31 (discounted to $30 for cash/check). 1.5 hours for 1-3 students are $93 (discounted to $90 for cash or check).

Privates are available most days and some evenings. Privates are only accepted from ongoing students and those who have had their half hour evaluation lesson (see getting started in agility) which may also be booked online. You may book your private online here.

Cost & Policies

ONGOING (Punch Card/Drop In) GROUP CLASSES. Ongoing group classes are usually paid for on a punch card system. A punch card is $124 (discounted to $120 for Zelle/checks/cash) and allows for 6 punches. Each time you attend a class, your card is punched. This works out to $20/class. Punch cards are NOT refundable in full or in part for any reason.  Class cards may not be used at privates, focus groups, or other special classes or events.

Drop In Rate: If you don't wish to buy a punch card, you may drop in (with advance notice) to a class and pay $25.

How to Pay for your punch card, class or private

1. Cash or check when you come to class.

2. Use the Zelle App (preferred method when you come to class).

3. Credit/debit card: Buy Punch Card Here You will receive your card when you come to class.

Punch cards are NON REFUNDABLE FOR ANY REASON, non transferrable and are good for one year from the date issued.

ROLL CALL! Each week I send out a roll call email to all current students asking who is coming to which classes that week. I must have a minimum of 3 participants in order to hold a class. I need to know a minimum of 48 hours in advance whether you plan to attend. That way I know whether I have enough and can let others know. This also allows me time to set up whatever exercises are appropriate for the group.

24 Hour Cancellation Policy! IF you tell me you are coming and you can't make it, you must give me 24 hour notice otherwise your card will be punched twice at the next class you attend. No exceptions unless I cancel the class for weather or other issues!!!

New Student Policy: If you are already doing agility and would like to take a class here at Creekside, that's great! If I don't already know you, you will need to come for a half hour evaluation so I can see where you and your dog are in the process. You will also need to fill out the New Student Registration form. You can book the evaluation online and fill out the form at the following links:

1. New Student Registration Form
