Waverly Leisure Services will be offering group Dog Obedience classes at the Waverly Bark Park starting June 7, 2022.  The class will meet at 6:30 pm and will be 1-hour long for 6 weeks. The class is limited to 6 dogs. Participants must register in advance to join the class. The deadline to register is May 31, 2022.

The cost of the class is $140 with a $20 discount for those that register a rescue dog. Joshua Smith, the instructor, is a graduate of the American Behavior College and the accreditation training program for dogs through PetSmart, Inc.


All dogs must be current on vaccinations including Rabies, Distemper/Parvo and Bordatella and free from visible infections, parasites, and communicable diseases. Proof of vaccination should be in the form of a receipt or other official document from a licensed veterinarian. If you have recently adopted your dog from a local shelter, please note that and we can obtain health records directly from the shelter.
