Class Attendees:

Whiskers University welcomes family participation in class. All children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent unless otherwise specified. We ask that children follow these guidelines:

  • Ask before petting another person’s dog
  • Practice good listening skills while the instructor is talking
  • The items on the floor are for puppies, please avoid standing on or moving them
  • During puppy play time only one family member is preferred to be involved. We need to view all puppy interactions and extra bodies make it difficult to do so. Also, children may not be aware of fast moving puppies and we want to prevent injuries.


If you are unable to make a night of class your instructor will provide you with the information missed and allow for a brief time prior to or after your scheduled class if demonstration is needed. Any other form of makeup will be at the discretion of the class instructor and WU management.

  • Please let us know if you are unable to attend a night of class.


  • Requests for a refund prior to the start of class, will be processed at 100% of the cost paid, minus a cancellation fee if within one  week of the start.
  • Requests for a refund after the start, but before week 3 of a class, will be processed for a 50% refund, or credit for Whiskers University and Whiskers Resort and Pet Spa services.
  • There is no refund available after the third week of class.
  • *After 60 days from original payment date, any refund will be applied to your account as a credit for services at Whiskers Resort & Pet Spa or Whiskers University.*


If you have any questions or concerns please email or call (616)575-5660.
