LeapsNBounds is an Introduction/Puppy Level program and Advanced Handling school. We offer limited middle level classes for students who graduate from the puppy program. Unfortunately, we do not offer any Adult Beginner classes. Jumping Chollas is the closest club. In addition to offering all class levels, they have a great links page that lists many of the private instructors and clubs in the valley.
LeapsNBounds classes are:
