How Sports Classes Work

Drop-in classes

 

We realize it’s hard for owners to commit to long-term training programs, so we’ve made our classes as simple as your gym classes. You can sign up for a class up to two hours ahead of the pick-up time, and we’ll come get your dog without you having to be there.

Pick up and drop off

 

All of our classes include a pickup and drop off service from your home, office or daycare. We currently serve Playa Vista, Marina Del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Beverly Hills and West LA. Don’t see your neighborhood? Give us a call (310) 828-3647.

Sports assessment

 

Dogs new to sports classes must set up a sports assessment to determine sociability, temperament and recall. The first part of the assessment takes place with you at your home or at the Fitdog Club. After we determine your dog is sociable and well tempered, we take your dog with us and our pack on the trail to assess recall.

Experienced and trained instructors

 

We want the best people to work with our dogs to not only ensure safety but quality of training. All of our instructors go through a rigorous vetting process including interview, class observations and reference checks.
