Visiting Hours


First Weekend

Visitors are not encouraged the first Saturday of class.  In order for you and your dog to bond and connect with as little distraction as possible, we do not allow visitors on Saturday. On Sunday, visitors are permitted between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., but you need to stay at the school on the premises with your dog.

Second and Third Weekends

Saturday, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Sunday,1 p.m. to 10 p.m.

You may, with permission from the Instructor, leave the premises with visitors on Saturday and Sunday. However, you may not take your dog with you, and you must return for your dog’s regularly scheduled “feed and park” needs.


Your graduation ceremony takes place on Saturday of the third weekend.

This ceremony begins at 1:30 p.m. and is dedicated to honoring you and the puppy raiser who provided the earliest socialization and training for your dog. The ceremony is followed by refreshments.

You may invite your family and friends to the ceremony. The ceremony can be viewed online both live and as a recorded link.

Once your puppy raiser departs, you may leave the campus with your guests. Retrains may go home after the graduation ceremony and reception. Those leaving by plane will be taken to the airport the following Sunday.
