Companion Dog Class Schedule

Class Refund Policy

Registration and payment of the training enrollment fee is a binding commitment that the owner and dog(s) will attend class sessions. If in the event you must cancel your registration in class or request a transfer to a different class offered at Argus Ranch, you are entitled to a full refund, or credit minus a $30 processing fee if you give Argus Ranch notice of your cancellation 7 days prior to the class start date. If notice is given less than 7 days to the class start date no refund or transfers will be given.  

In the Training Barn, facial masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Social distancing is still in effect for all of our classes.  We allow up to two family members per dog in classes located in the Training Barn. 

**ZANEE ARENA

Zanee Arena is considered an outdoor structure by the State of WA and is ideal for students uncomfortable being indoors. Masks are not currently required, but each person should carry one in the event social distancing is not possible. One additional family member is allowed to attend classes in the Zanee Arena. Look for the ** to the left of the day and date listing for classes in the Zanee Arena or in the class configuration area.
