Bark Back!


"We were very excited that our entire family could take part in the class together.  Owning a puppy has been quite a new experience for us and it’s been so important that we can all learn together. We have loved coming to class every week and so has Storm.  We know that we have a lot of work ahead of us but with attending class, reading and watching the videos we have a great foundation to build on.  We will be sure to recommend this class!"

"Every class with Janice was a great experience.  She was always willing to stop and answer any questions or concerns we had with each lesson.  The way she encouraged and complement our children was a huge plus.  With this being our first dog it was great to see our children smile when they were told they were doing a fantastic job Storm.    Janice is so patient and always made sure we got it right before moving on to the next step.  A++++++++++ to Janice!! ☺"

"We have been very happy since finding Head of the Class Dog Training LLC.  I knew that I wanted to train Tucker to be a therapy dog but had no idea how to go about it.  Since taking classes at Head of the Class, Tucker has gotten his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate and has also become a Registered Pet Partners Therapy Dog.  We now have 13 week old Skipper who I would like to become a therapy dog as well. Skipper has started classes at Head of the Class and will be following in Tucker's footsteps."
