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, Fridays at 2 pm, and Saturdays at 12:30 pm as follows:

  • Wednesdays, January 29th through April 29th

  • Fridays, January 10th through April 24th (no Open Training March 13th)

  • Saturdays January 18th through March 28th (no Open Training March 14th)


Ten one-hour session punch card for $100.  The punch card expires six months after purchase date.  Open Training is only offered during the winter months, please plan accordingly so you can take full advantage of the punch card.


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!
