Dog Manners Class

Using methods based on positive reinforcement, we will teach you how to communicate with your dog. Our class is for adolescents and adult dogs (18 weeks of age and older) and begins with a 2 hour orientation for humans only. Attendance at orientation is mandatory. The remaining six classes will meet once a week for 75 minutes. We teach attention, walking nicely on a leash, come when called, sit, stay, down, stand, off, drop it, no jumping, leave it, touch and then put them all together into useful real life applications. The learned tricks are fun too!Want to establish a mutual bond and appropriate relationship between your family and the dog living with you? Take a look at our presentation for more details.
