Special Events – scavenger hunt, Halloween howl, bonfire party, shopping parties (for human and canine gear), pub events

What does a monthly class offerings schedule look like?

club360 is a year-round club, meaning we offer classes every month of the year.  The number of classes offered each month range from 15 to 25.  When the demand is high, we run more classes.  Some class types repeat within the month to ensure that all club360 members have the chance to participate in the classes they love.  Example:  we may run the same reliable recall class two or three times in a month to accommodate everyone who is interested in that specific class.

As a club360 member, you get to choose what classes you attend.  Some members like to participate in one class a month, while other members come to nearly every one we have scheduled!  There is no minimum or maximum; the flexibility is yours!

Although the majority of classes take place on weekday evenings and weekends, we do have a few weekday morning classes available.  We monitor popular times and always increase our offerings based on client participation.

Are there any limitations or restrictions to what classes, or how many classes, I can sign up for?

You can sign up for as many classes each month as you like, their are no limitations on the number of classes you can attend.  Some classes, however, will require you to attend a seminar prior to the hands-on class.  These classes tend to be more advanced and/or require an academic understanding of the concepts before applying them.  All seminars are included in the price of your club360 membership.

Are there options for less than a year long membership, such as monthly or per-class drop in rates?

club360 is a year long membership and as such we do not have a drop in or class by class option.  The benefit from club360 comes from attending a variety of classes regularly to support in maintaining or advancing skills, which is tough to accomplish on a “drop in” basis.

Do classes run year round, regardless of weather?

Yes, classes run year round regardless of weather.  Some outdoor classes in the winter will be modified or moved inside when the weather gets really cold.  You have to provide mental and physical stimulation for your dog everyday regardless of weather, so why not do it in a club360 class that is fun, motivating, and with like-minded people?

I have more than one dog, do I need a membership for each of them?

If you have more than one dog you have two membership options.  The first option is get a membership for both dogs and they can both attend classes at the same time.  The second dog membership is half price, so it makes it reasonable if you decide to only bring one dog to class every now and then.  With a two dog membership, you have the choice to bring both if you wish.

The second option is to purchase one membership and alternate which dog comes to class with you.  This option allows you to spend special quality time with just one dog, giving you the opportunity to focus on that dog’s needs.  With the same class offered a couple different times each month, some clients choose to attend twice, once with one dog, and then again with the other.

I did core with my previous dog, do I have to take core again with my new dog before joining club360?

If you have done core with a prior dog you may join club360 with your new dog, provided the new dog is at a similar skill level as a core graduate.  This is assuming that you are taking the skills you learned in core with your other dog and have been applying them with your new dog.  Majority of clients choose to take core again with their new dog anyway, as the needs and skill levels are usually different.  Overall, we highly encourage you take core again with the new dog, but in certain cases it may not be necessary.

Can I try a club360 class before I make the decision to join?

core graduates are gifted with two club360 classes to be used the month after they graduate, providing you an option to “try before you buy”.

Can other family members participate in class with me?

Of course!  Just like core, we do not have a limit as to how many humans attend class with your dog.  Also, the membership is based on the dog, so any family member or friend with experience in clevercanines training can attend with your dog instead of you.  

Do I have to have had completed a previous program before joining club360?

Only core graduates are eligible to become club360 members.  club360 is meant to take what you learned in core and grow your knowledge and skills from that base, all while giving you different opportunities to practice in different training environments which helps build stronger reliability and trust.  core ensures that everyone in club360 is starting with the same understanding, which allows us to advance the curriculum and play more games, keeping you challenged and having fun at the same time!

When can I join?

You can join club360 at any point throughout the year, and your annual membership would start from that point.  However, we do offer a 10% discount the month immediately following you graduation from core, so that is a particularly good time to join!

Do all classes take place outdoors?

While majority of our classes take place outdoors, we do have some that are held indoors.  And sometimes we like to bring the indoor classes outdoors!  It all depends on that class’s curriculum and sometimes the weather.  Super cold weather does affect outdoor classes, and if the curriculum can be adapted for indoors, we will move the class inside instead of cancelling.

Working outdoors provides the best opportunity for practicing with real-life distractions and challenges.  Overall, it helps to proof our skills and strengthen the reliability.  Some classes, like Tricks For Treats, benefit from removing as many distractions as possible, which is where working inside our facility is favourable.  Every class has a description so you know where the class will be held.

 

How do I know if my dog is ready for club360?

If you completed core, you are ready for club360 (and so is your dog!)  Your dog does not need to be at an advanced level or have mastered all the skills taught in core.  Each club360 class is designed to support you at whatever level you and your dog are at.  If you are more advanced, you will have options in club360 to challenge yourself further, and if you still need support, well, then you couldn’t be in a better place!

Are there additional perks to being a club360 member?

There are many additional benefits to becoming a club360 member, from discounts at our favourite stores to special events and exclusive invitations.  Click here to see the additional benefits of being club360 member. (link)

What Our Clients Say

As recent graduates of pupstart & core, frequent dayschool attendees, and now participating in club360; we are so happy with the level of knowledge and care the staff provides. A great balance of structure, play and practice has really helped us keep our puppy’s learning on track. Everything we invested into Clever Canines we have received back ten fold. It’s so satisfying to see hard work pay off!
