Rescued Dogs Rate Highly at IPOC

  • Rescued dogs are eligible to receive a one time 15% discount from the regular price of either the Kindergarten Puppy Training (KPT) or the Basic Obedience classes.
  • This offer is valid up to one year after the adoption date with proof of adoption, from a well known rescue organization, which must be shown at the time of class registration.
  • We feel rescued dogs deserve a second chance and an obedience class will give them and their new owners a better opportunity to succeed together.
