Register by Mail or In Person

Download, fill out and print the forms, then send the registration form, waiver, a copy of the dog's vaccination certificates and a check (payable to DPDTC) to:

P.O. Box 361
Los Altos, CA 94023-0361


Bring all forms and payment to the first night of class

To reserve a spot in a class, send an email to the Training Coordinator, however, priority is based on when payment, completed forms and vaccination certificate copies are received.

If you provide us with an email address, we will confirm your registration, or contact you if the class is full or if your registration is incomplete. Please come to class unless you hear otherwise. Check the club's voicemail message at (650) 961-1891 after 4:00 PM on class day for rain cancellation information.

For returning students, we highly recommend taking advantage of pre-registration sign-ups that are available on the 6th and 7th weeks of class. Returning students need only pay for their next session.

All classes are on Monday evenings, weather permitting. Fees are for a 7 week session, unless noted. Drop-ins may be permitted at the discretion of the instructor. There are no drop-ins for Beginning Class, ever. Classes missed due to weather will be made up by extending the session's end date.

Registration FAQs

Can I register the first night of class?
Yes, you can register the first night of class, but if you haven't reserved a spot by emailing the Training Coordinator, the class could potentially be full before you get there.

Can I pay other than by check?
