Are you open now for training sessions, facility rentals and agility trials?
Yes, we're open. Our facility is LARGE, and there is plenty of room for social distancing. As things start to open back up in our community, All FUR Fun Training and Event Center will continue to listen to state and local authorities to make the best decision for our clients and their pets. Your health and our team's health remain our top priority. All FUR Fun will continue to remain open.
We will require everyone, both staff and clients to wear face masks upon entering the building. When in training classes, safe distances are maintained. Masks will be optional when proper spacing is observed. Masks are not required when running your dog in agility. Only one person will be on the floor at any one time.
In the event of any changes, you can be the first to know by subscribing to our mailing list or following us on social media. All FUR Fun Training and Event Center is dedicated to being there for you, so please don't hesitate to reach out and contact us if you have any questions!
Why do I need to come to the IPT (Intro to Positive Training) class?
We like to meet with all members of the human team first. In this informative class, we discuss tips to make your life with your pup so much easier. We talk about your dog, any issues that you are currently having, and give you tips and tricks to fix immediate behavior problems. We'll prepare an individualized training program based upon your goals and where your pup is in their own training. When you complete the IPT class, you can rest assured you are on the right path to build a great bond with you dog. The IPT (Intro to Positive Training) Class is held most Mondays at 7:30 pm, and on Saturday at 1pm. The cost is just $35 and that covers everyone in the family.

Is the IPT class mandatory to begin training at All FUR Fun?
The short answer is yes. It is the way we develop your personalized training program. The whole family is invited to attend! There ARE, however, a few classes that do not require this class. Pre-requisites will be listed in class descriptions. No matter which class you attend, the Intro to Positive Training Class will give you a real head start! We just ask that any small children be closely supervised and able to engage during the entire class.
If you immediately start in one of our higher-level agility classes, the instructor may be able to meet personally with you to determine your dog’s prior agility training.
Do you offer doggy day care?
We do not. Our focus is training and opening communication between you and your dog.
Can I bring my dog to AFF to practice?
Yes. We have times that our training areas are not being used for classes or private sessions. The rooms are NOT to be used as an “open play time” for dogs not in current training classes.
Does my dog need to be current on vaccinations?
The short answer is yes. We do require rabies as per the state laws. Puppies are required to have had their second set of vaccinations at least five days prior to coming to AFF. We do not collect vaccination records, but we do reserve the right to request proof at any time.
Can I bring more than one dog to class at the same time?
You can, however, this is not usually advantageous, as dogs in the same household might spend their time focusing on their housemate. Enrolling just one dog in class and working on all the same behaviors might be a better option for you, and cheaper!
What happens if I miss a class?
If you miss a class, you do have the option to schedule a make-up session with your instruction at an additional cost.
What do I need to bring to class?
It’s wise to make a training bag to bring each time you come to class. Depending on the class: bring a hungry dog, a mixture of treats that your dog values (we also have treats for purchase), toys that your dog likes for reinforcement, a regular collar or harness and leash, a mat for relaxation, and a willing and open attitude.
Can I bring my children to the training classes?
We like the whole family to be involved in training. The maturity of the child who wants to participate in training needs to be considered, and not necessarily the age of the child. The adults must be in charge of the training and handling of the dog, with instructor judgment on interaction between children and the dog. Young children should not be in charge of controlling the dog.
How do I enroll in a class?
If you are new to our training center, you’ll start with the IPT (Introduction to Positive Training). The IPT Class is held most Mondays at 7:30 pm, and on Saturday at 1pm. The cost is just $35 and that covers everyone in the family. If you'd like to register for IPT, click one of the links below:

May I come observe a class?
Yes. We welcome observers. If you choose to observe a class, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the information. Please note that NO dogs will be allowed to come for observation.
Does the same person need to be the handler during the whole length of class?
We suggest that one-person work with a dog at one time. If the exercise changes, you are welcome to switch handlers.
