The Continuing Education Club

The Continuing Education Club is a fun, flexible way to continue your dog's education after basic training.  This class is held in the basement of St Martin's Episcopal Church, located at 1095 E Thacker St, Des Plaines, IL. 

To be eligible for the Continuing Education Club, your dog must have graduated from one of the following classes with Happy Hound University: Good Manners 1 and 2, or Puppy 1, 2, and 3 class. ​

Each week we will work on one of the following categories: 

- Manners Refreshers (continued work on polite leash walking, stay, polite greetings etc.)

- Introduction to a new trick (introducing tricks like take a bow, spin, roll over, jump through a hoop, and more)

- Introduction to some fitness basics (pivoting on a platform, rear end awareness exercises)

- Focus and engagement obstacle courses (Each course will offer different challenges to put you and your dog's training to the test!) 

Class will be held on Thursdays, alternating between 3:45 PM and 8:00 PM class. Classes can be purchased in packages of 4, 8, or 12, and this class is a "punch card" style class meaning you can choose to attend whichever classes work best with your schedule!
