New Student Information

Most inquiries either ask how to register/try a class, or what the fees are. If your question is not answered below, please call Ray Copeland at  630-951-0111.    AGE:  Potential students should be at least 5 years old depending on their maturity.    If younger than 8, parents should
stay and watch the child train, just in case they get tired or need other assistance.

To register or try a free class, simply come by the school at any of the class times and speak to an instructor. Wear comfortable clothes and you can try it out!  Classes with an emphasis on younger or beginning students are held Tuesday and Friday evenings.
It is suggested that you try different classes to see what works best for you.    Students should try to train 2 or 3 times each week.
Other guidelines are listed in the Training Guidelines document included in the Student Starting Package.

We are located in the small shopping strip at the SW corner of Geneva Rd and Pleasant Hill Rd in Wheaton, IL. Class times are listed on the website at www.pathwaystkd.com.    See the tab:  "Classes".
