The Wellesley Recreation Department has offered dog training classes for many years now. I started teaching here in January 2012. Classes are held seasonally winter, spring, summer and fall.
For Wellesley residents, the cost of a 5 week class is $125 and for non-residents, $135. You can register online. If you have any questions, please call 781-235-2370 or stop by the Warren Building at 90 Washington Street (Route 16) in Wellesley. Register on or before noon the Thursday prior to class to insure the class will run. A three dog minimum is required to have a class.
Classes take place in the gymnasium on the second floor and one flight or an elevator ride up from the back entrance from the parking lot. Please wear comfortable shoes that will not scuff the floor. Please bring proof of vaccinations to the first class. Bring plenty of puppy or dog food along with yummy treats and a favorite toy to each class. Please do not feed your dog before coming to class. All family members are encouraged to participate. Children under 12 years of age require an extra parent to supervise so not to interrupt the flow of class.
