Skiplyn Kennels will be closed due to the COVID-19 prevention plan put in place by the Ontario government. All classes will be postponed until further notice. If you are registered in the current session, we will contact you once classes are running again. As this is a fluid situation, Skiplyn Kennels will be closed for at least 2 weeks but we cannot provide a restart date at this point. Thank you for your understanding.

In the message box, put your name & phone number, as well as which class you want. Registration will be on March 10, 2020 from 6 - 8 p.m. and any remaining balance owing will be due before or by this date.
Dogs have to be up to date on vaccines (including kennel cough) BEFORE classes start and a vaccine certificate from your veterinarian should be brought to registration as proof of vaccine status.
If you have a reactive dog (people aggression or dog aggression), a private session with Tammy is REQUIRED prior to joining group classes. The private session is needed to assess the dog for proper class placement and for the safety of our other students. PLEASE NOTE: participation may be revoked (with no refund) if your dog's reactivity is not disclosed prior to registration.
If you are interested in private training (one on one training) prior to or instead of group classes, the cost is $100 per hour for regular issues and $150 per hour for any aggression or reactivity issues.
