Fee Schedule & Gift Certificates


NOTE:  PRIOR TO OUR FEE SCHEDULE INCREASE — THROUGH NOVEMBER 30, 2019 — ALL PRICES WILL BE $20 LESS THAN THOSE PUBLISHED BELOW. WHEN YOU CLICK ON THE LINK TO SIGN UP FOR A CLASS, THE CORRECT PRICE WILL BE DISPLAYED.

Fee Schedule Effective December 1, 2019

As everyone knows, the cost of living and the cost of doing business rises every year. It has been more than three years (Sept. 2016) since our last increase. In order to maintain the same high standards and professional instruction that we’ve provided since 1977, we will be increasing our prices by $20 per 6-week session of classes effective December 1, 2019. Our new fee schedule is outlined below.

We continue to offer multi-class/multi-dog discounts. On our website these are called “packages.” If you’d like to save a bit of money, purchase a package of classes before the price increase on December 1. You will have until March 31, 2020 to use packages purchased between Oct. 22 and Nov. 30, 2019. Please contact our office if you need assistance or have questions. Thanks for your ongoing support of Family Dog!

Home Obedience & Manners Packages effective Dec. 1, 2019:

Basic Puppy Package (Puppy Manners & Beginning Home Obedience – 12 weeks of classes) $340.00
Perfect Puppy Package (Puppy Manners, Beginning Home Obedience & Advanced Home Obedience – 18 weeks of classes) $485.00

Additional Information Regarding Payments, Package Expiration and Make-ups

Multi-class packages purchased between October 22 and November 30, 2019 will be at the current prices (see below) and have an extended period in which to use them – March 31, 2020. After December 1, 2019, packages will expire 90 days after purchase. Students need to enroll in future classes within 90 days of purchase. In order to receive the multi-class/multi-dog discount, all classes must be paid for simultaneously, in one transaction. Make-ups must be done during the current session of classes unless other arrangements have been made and confirmed by our office in writing. Make-ups may not be carried forward into future sessions or pro-rated and applied to future classes; however, make-ups may be done prior to the class(es) that will be missed. Check our website for make-up options and then contact the office to let us know which class you’ll attend.

6 – week Session of Group Classes: $195

Each week of class is one hour long and each session lasts 6 weeks. Students have unlimited access to their instructors throughout the week via email and telephone. In the event a student misses a class, make-ups can be accommodated. Click here to visit our student make-up website.

All classes are 6-weeks long unless otherwise indicated on the schedule. One class or dog enrolled: $195.00 / 6-week session

We believe that we offer an outstanding value for the money: small group classes with lots of individual attention in a beautiful facility, a caring and professional staff, email and phone support outside of classes – and those are just a few of many the benefits that we feel we offer our students.

Family – Multiple Dog – Class Discounts

Because we value our students who take multiple classes and/or train multiple dogs, we are continuing to offer significant discounts for additional classes that are paid for in the same transaction.

NOTE:  Multi-dog class discounts are not available for pro-rated sessions, class credits, other coupons or deals, etc. Online multi-dog class discounts are provided by purchasing a package and then registering for the class you want using that purchased package.

Second class or dog is: $145  $340 for two classes/dog
