Dog Training

From new puppies to show dogs, we can help along every step of your dog's training journey. We're keeping safety top-of-mind as we reopen classes. Here are a few of the changes you can expect for a safer dog training experience this summer.

What's New
Combined classes
Beginning and intermediate dog training classes will be combined this summer.

Dog training classes will be held indoors on the wood courts. Please enter on the south side of Bob Keefer Center and enter through the open side doors for easiest access.
There are a few outdoor class dates for Advanced Dog Training.

Advance registration
You will still have the flexibility offered with the four-punch pass, but you will need to register ahead of attending summer classes. There is a limit of 20 participants per class.

Why do I have to register in advance?
This allows us to keep maximum capacity in check, ensuring enough space between participants.

What are you doing to keep participants safe?
We are enforcing six-foot physical distancing during class and have specified an entry to and from class that will minimize exposure to other Bob Keefer Center visitors.

Do I have to wear a mask?

For all indoor classes, patrons will be required to wear a mask. This is in alignment with state requirements for masks in all public indoor businesses, effective July 1.

Will the instructor wear a mask?
Instructors are required to wear a mask indoors. Instructors are also required to adhere to six-foot physical distancing.

What does ID/OD mean?
People who live or own property within Willamalane Park and Recreation District’s boundaries support Willamalane with their tax dollars, and so they enjoy lower program costs. If you live in-district, you'll pay the ID cost; if you live out-of-district, you'll pay the OD cost. Not sure if you're in-district? Check the district map here.
