Thank you for choosing Cloud Nine Training School for Dogs. We look forward to helping you understand your dog, train your dog, improve your dogs’ good manners, and enjoy doing your favorite dog-related activities.

As of May 2021 we now are able to allow two people to attend class per dog. Masks are not required. 

And remember, please don’t attend class if you’re not feeling well. 

If your dog is not feeling well, is recovering from spay/neuter surgery or is in season, you may attend class without him/her so you don’t fall behind on your lessons.

  1. Cloud Nine is located at 11528 – 96th Ave. N, Maple Grove, MN 55369. GPS often takes you to the Park and Ride lot. To avoid that, from Zachary Lane, go west on 95th Ave. N to 96th Ave. N. Turn right on 96th Ave N. Follow the street as it turns east. We are in the last building you come to and we are on the end closest to Hwy 610.
  2. Before attending a class at Cloud Nine, please make sure your puppy/dog has received vaccinations that are appropriate for its age based on the vaccination protocol of Dr. Jean Dodds. Please bring proof of your puppy’s or dog’s vaccinations to your first lesson.
  3. Please read and understand the policies at Cloud Nine before signing up for a class.
  4. Refunds are given only if your registration is canceled 48 hours before the first lesson of the class in which we reserved a spot for you and your dog. Cancellation requests must be submitted by email to dervish01@gmail.com. A $10 administration fee will apply to any canceled registration.
