How Our Virtual Classes Work:

Below is the schedule for next week’s virtual classes! Here are some more details:

  1. Text us at 201-512-8316 with your dog’s name and last name and let us know which virtual class you’d like to attend.
  2. We will send you back a secure link for payment (our 45 minute virtual classes are $35 each OR 3 for $90) so they will NOT come out of your regular class pack. 
  3. Once your payment has been received we’ll then send you the link to the Zoom Webinar for your class! *There is no additional fee to use the Zoom program*

March 18, 2020 Update

As a business that sells dog food, and cares for first responders and other essential medical personnel, we’re permitted to be one of the business types that can remain open.

But, we need to make some modifications!

Email us at for information on outdoor and virtual sessions.

We’ll be doing curbside drop-off and pick-up only for PlayCare and FastTrack.

Please text us at 201-512-8316 with your name, your dog’s name, and the color and make of your car so we can come out to you and complete the check-in / check-out process.

We’re still offering Kongs, treats (we have various types of proteins, and treats for puppies and dogs with sensitive tummies too!), bully sticks, food, and toys. (We’ll handle them with gloves, and can bring them out to you at pick up!)

We’re looking forward to this passing quickly and to everyone and their families staying healthy and safe.
