CLASSES
What your dog wants most is to spend time with YOU.  When you make the time to learn something new or take a class with them, you increase your bond, help to build their confidence and burn off mental and physical energy.
STAY TUNED FOR UPCOMING SUMMER AND FALL PROGRAMS AND CLASSES

Classes are at Mr. Pets in St. Albert or
The Dog Shoppe in Devon
