Welcome to All–Star Canine Class.

We are committed to helping you create a positive and lasting relationship between you and your dog. Many behavior problems can be prevented or solved with positive, consistent training and socialization.
  • All–Star Canine Class teaches you how to train your dog to come when called, sit, go to bed, behave on a leash and more.
  • Classes meet once a week for six weeks.
  • Each class lasts about an hour.
  • First class is orientation; please do not bring your dog.
  • Course fee is $125.
  • A $30 discount is given if you adopted from the MD SPCA.
  • Low income vouchers are available. To qualify for a low-income voucher, you should earn less than $25,000 annually or household earnings should be less than $42,000 a year. Proof of income is required and can be based on last year's income tax form, Social Security Disability, all W-2 forms for the family, Section 8, Free Lunch, Food Stamps, VA Disability, AFDC, WIC or Pay Stub. Complete our Low Income Verification Form and submit it to Stephen Lewis, KPA-CTP at the MD SPCA.
  • Classes are for fully vaccinated dogs ages four months and older, who are people and dog friendly.
