  • A waitlist will be started when all spots are filled
  • Workshop participants will be provided with a clicker and relevant handouts.
  •  Workshop participants are asked to bring a bag of at least 300, pea-sized smelly treats (cheese, hot dog, sandwich meats, chopped steak – not biscuits, kibble or veggies) and a fanny pack in which to hold the treats, or a pouch can be purchased at the school.
  • Workshop participants are asked to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the workshop.
