Open Training - this is an opportunity for you and your dog to work on lead, independently, in a safe and controlled environment at our training facility.  One of our trainers will be present at the training facility. 


This is not an instructor-led class.  It is a chance for up to 6 dog/handler teams to work independently, in the presence of distractions (other people and dogs).  All dogs must work on lead and MUST be comfortable working in the presence of unknown people and dogs.  This is not for reactive or aggressive dogs.

One hour OT sessions are held on Wednesdays at 430 pm and Fridays at 2 pm as follows:

  • Wednesdays, September 4 through Wednesday, December 18, 2019 from 430-530 pm (no Open Training sessions will be held on November 6, November 27, or December 25, 2019, nor on January 1 and January 8, 2020)

  • Fridays, September 6 through December 20, 2019 from 2-3 pm (no Open Training sessions will be held on November 29, 2019, December 27, 2019, January 3, 2020 and January 10, 2020)


Ten one-hour session punch card for $100.  The punch card expires six months after purchase date.  


An email must be sent to info@bestfriendsdogacademy.com each time you plan to attend an Open Training session.  This allows us to keep the size at no more than 6 dog/handler teams at any one time.  You may come as often as you want, we just need to know if you are coming!
